Scleroderma, CREST syndrome, Fatigue, Weight Loss, Infections, Gangrenous Finger
Doreen (from West Covina) – Doreen was diagnosed with scleroderma almost 10 years ago when she was 17 years old. She was getting infections in her fingers, her skin was becoming tight and taut, and she would wake up in the morning very sore. She couldn’t even get out of bed she was in so much pain. Her doctors thought that she could have bursitis (arthritis in the hips) After tests, it was confirmed that she had scleroderma and CREST syndrome. She saw 6 rheumatologists, who gave her medication such as Vicodin, steroids, and morphine. She was on steroids for 3 years which caused her to develop osteoporosis. Doreen was recommended by her OB-GYN to see Dr. Tong. After her first treatment with Dr. Tong, she was able to discontinue her Vicodin (she was taking 6-8 pills). After the 3rd treatment, she was off her morphine and steroids. Now her energy level is greatly improved. She can get up in the morning and stay up without having to take a nap. The pain in her hands is much better. One of her fingers was so infected that it was gangrenous. Her doctor wanted to amputate her finger, but after Dr. Tong’s treatment, the skin underneath the gangrenous skin is growing back. She has also gained some weight. Before seeing Dr. Tong she was down to 77 pounds. In two weeks she has gained 10 pounds, and is almost back to her normal weight. Doreen was always tired, very mad, very snappy, and very angry. After treatments with Dr. Tong, she is much happier, her voice is softer, and she has more energy.
