scleroderma

I believe I have scleroderma.
I think I've had it along time,but within the last 5 months it's been really bad.
My hands and face,my face just seems more dry,but my hands,it was terrible.
the skin on my nuckles was about an inch thick and it cracked.the pain was in my whole hand.
I also have to wash with cool water,even lukewarm feels hot.
And I feel alot of pain in my joints.

I was on prednisone for 5 days and felt alot better.

Anyone with scleroderma can you tell me what more to expect.

thanks,

Samantha
