Good Morning,
I understand the anxiety that waiting on test causes.  We are waiting on my husband's lab work drawn last Friday.  It is usually normal but until we see the final results the scary thoughts run through our head.
Big breath and let us know your results.  We are here to support you.

It took a long time but I got the news that all tests were negative on scleroderma :). I am happy for that, but still frustrated about my general condition. My PH tests all came back normal, but the loss of pressure in my esophagus is caused by connective tissue diseases (which I don't have), or long-standing severe GERD, which it would then appear that I do. But the ph tests always come back normal, and although the barium swallow showed "spontaneous gerd", my dr. said it isn't too significant. So lost...so frustrated.
