Yes, this happens with no injury. I am pretty sure it is Systemic Scleroderma… I’ve done a lot of research on the web since posting this. I will go to see my rheumatologist next week and keep you posted if I get diagnosed. I believe when my hands turned bright red, swell up, my veins distend like crazy – it is related to the scleroderma. I may have pulmonary hypertension secondary to scleroderma. This could be the cause of my shortness of breath and the Syncope, or the cause could be my indented spinal cord. Oh, and yes it’s is on both hands. The left hand is more severe than the right though.
