2. Cold fingers or toes that turn red, white, or blue
Another mild form of scleroderma is known as limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis, which once again only affects the skin on certain parts of the body.
Typically, the skin on a patient’s face, legs, hands, feet, and arms can be affected, although this form of scleroderma can, unfortunately, lead to problems with the lungs and the digestive system. Fingers and toes turning different colors can be symptomatic of a bunch of different health problems, and so establishing scleroderma from this symptom can be fairly difficult to confirm.
Initially mimicking or actually developing from Raynaud’s disease, where poor circulation causes the discoloration of fingers and toes, this type of scleroderma makes everyday activities challenging to perform.
As mentioned throughout this article, some forms of scleroderma come and go in terms of the severity of the symptoms, meaning that some sufferers may experience little to no trouble at all.
This said it isn’t difficult to imagine the misery that living with a high number of these 8 common symptoms could bring.
