Hi Rhonda, I havn't been DX'd with it yet either but I have some symptoms. Like choking on food somtimes. Spots on my hands. My ANA is 1:2460, with a nuclear pattern. I'm not crazy about the rheumy that said he was thinking crest but he did say of all the auto immune disease that you can get crest is the least invasive. Now if you are talking about scleraderma that attacks your organs that's another subject. O personally don't beleive there is any auto immune disease that could be discribed as good. Like you I've looked at picturees of crest and read up on it. It doesn't sound to nice to me. I hope you get some answers soon.
