I have recently been diagnosed with scleroderma.  I also have been having what my doctor calls benign fasciculations.  My eye lids twitch, beneath both eyes, and by my mouth.  He doesn't see any relationship between the two.  I'm thinking there must be some relationship between them.  Has anyone had this?

I just became a member of this website and was reading some of the entries. I know your entry was in July so you probably know the answer to this but I'll tell you my experience. I was diagnoised with limited scleroderma 30 years ago. In the past 6 or 7 years I have been experiencing facial pain and numbing. I was sent to a neurologist and he diagnoised me with facial neuropothy. It's when the nerves in the face become inflamed and sometimes your eyes and mouth droop. My Dr. said the scleroderma and neuropothy go hand in hand.
