What are the most common symptoms of circumscribed scleroderma? Do I need to have all of them to really have it?
Skin changes: The first sign is usually patchy areas on the skin that often make a linear pattern. Early on, they are slightly pink and thickened, but can be flat and shiny. As time passes, the skin spots enlarge and often become thick and lavender/purple-colored, sometimes with pale flat centers. Scleroderma can also affect the heart, lung, kidney, joints, digestive tract. Please see your doctor if you're worried.
Tight skin: People with scleroderma have tight skin, but have other findings including raynauds, finger changing color in the cold or stress, joint pain, and can have internal involvement in the lungs, heart, kidney etc. Each person has different finding and the rheumatologist helps to put it together.See 1 more doctor answer
