Hi KaAl . . . you might want to start a new topic for those issues. There are a couple reasons for the throat issues . . . but my memory ????? I think it was scleroderma and/or sjogrens. The face issue . . . I've had that too. It seems to go together with or precede a flare. I have limbs and areas on my body just go numb, including parts of the face sometimes. I even had a numb scalp. I'm not sure if there is inflammation pressing on nerves/blood vessels??
I hope you find some help re the mind thing in the other thread.
