Is Asthma an autoimmune disorders? If you have an autoimmune disease can you develop other autoimmune disorders?

I have Celiac/Sprue disease. asthma, allergies, and Atypical migraines. I have been told once you have an autoimmune disorder you are high risk for others. Recently I was told my Atypical migraines are considered autoimmune based on recent research. Are asthma and allergies also considered autoimmune disorders?

Asthma and severe allergies developed in my late '40's  5 years after I was diagnosed with Celiac/Sprue.
Atypical migraines developed this past year. It took 10 months for doctors to diagnose my headaches.

If you have Celiac disease, you are at a higher risk for developing other autoimmune conditions. I also believe the same thing about asthma (that is probably why some insurance companies are denying health insurance to people who have asthma).

I have had lupus for two years and as of yesterday I was dx'd with possible asthma. Have you had a breathing test?

Thank you for your response. Yes I have had several pulmonary function tests (breathing tests).
