I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH “CREST SYNDROM” DURING THE PAST 18 MONTHS. THIS CONDITION IS PARTICULAR TO CHOCTAW WOMEN. DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS? WHAT TREATMENTS ARE YOU USING? ARE ANY STUDIES BEING CONDUCTED EITHER IN DURANT OR ELSEWHERE? ARE THERE ANY DOCTORS WELL VERSED IN THE DISEASE? I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION OR LEADS.

Some people believe scleroderma results from a Vitamin D deficiency. It would be interesting for those with CREST and their family members to test and monitor thier Vitamin D. I’m already on Vitamin D and folic acid. I hope that it may have stopped what lied ahead in my future.

Even if low vitamin D doesn’t cause scleroderma, finding low vitamin D and taking low vitamin D for a vitamin D deficiency is a good thing.

Wow… I came to the Choctaw web site looking to see if there might be any information on Systemic Scleroderma and related Symptoms.

I’m self diagnosed …since I worked for Kaiser and I had Kaiser Doctors only. I was sick and not working and walking with a cane at that time. I asked for a walker with a seat on it because it felt like I was going to fall to the floor at any minute from the weakness. The Doctor said I just had Fibromyalgia and to go exercise! OMG I was in tears and said, "IF I COULD EXERCISE, I’D BE AT WORK!
