Agent Orange, lupus, CREST, Shogren's, etc
I was an Army Nurse in Vietnam in 1969 and it looks like I definitely have an auto immune disease, will see the Rheumatologist on August 9th, 2011. Are there any research studies linking Agent Orange and Lupus ?

Thx and my heart goes out to all of you suffering due to exposure to AO !

this is an interesting read and as an Army Nurse you might gain some information on Mycoplasmas

I am the daughter of a Vietnam Vet who was exposed to Agent Orange.  I was just diagnosed with Lupus, Sjogren's, and Raynaud's a couple weeks ago.  

In my research about the disease I stumbled across an article you might find interesting.  It appears there is enough suspicion about a relationship between Agent Orange and Lupus to warrant a study or two about it.  VA publication from 2007:  http://www.publichealth.va.gov/docs/agentorange/reviews/ao_newsletter_oct07.pdf
