I'm not making this up.

I've been diagnosed -- and have active problems with -- asthma, glomerulonephritis, and multiple sclerosis.  The nephrology problems are the latest.  I can see how asthma and ms both fall into the autoimmune category, but how does kidney function fall into the package?  And two other quasi related issues: too little exercise and no insurance.  
I'm a science writer, and research is my job, but for the life of me, I can't figure out a way to package all these problems.  Any explanation or suggestions?

I always assume that no one makes up symptoms; in fact, they probably miss many because they can’t see any relationship between them.  Asthma, nephritis and MS can be linked by chronic infections that can affect all of these and more.  In fact, there are probably other signs/symptoms that you haven’t yet recognized.
