POF and Pancreatis
I am a VERY healthy 35-year-old woman. Last Feb, I was hospitalized with a near-fatal attack of pancreatitis lasting 15 days with no cause ever found (I was hospitalized the entire time).  Two days ago I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure or early menopause.

It seems more than coincidental that I have failure on two major systems within months of each other.  (NOTE: Levels indicate I began menopause about three months ago).  All research I've done says some autoimmune diseases can cause multiple organ failure.  Both Pancreatitis and POF can be caused by AI disorders.  Lupus, however, was ruled out while I was in the hospital.

I can't get a doctor who really wants to dive into this and believes its related, but I know in my gut that it is.  Has anyone else ever had organ or system failures along with POF?  What are some of the AI disorders that cause both or multiple?

Believe me, this is way out of left field.  No family history, no health issues whatsoever...  Thanks for your reply :)
