Raynauds

I am a 26 year old female and I have Raynauds syndrome. Does this mean that I have a good chance of developing something like scleroderma (or other diseases) later in life?

I was diagnosed when I was 22 years of age

Hallo Anon
Only a very small % of patients develop Scleroderma, 95% of people do not develop scleroderma. You can ask your doctor to screen you for any other auto immune diseases if you develop any other symptoms like joint pain etc.
