Hey Stranger,

What the heck - double whammie? Haven't seen you in a long time. Thanks for poppin in. Are you still on a disease modifier?

I don't have both, but wanted to at least say hello, and also I'm sorry for the secondary problem :( I'm sure the others will chime in soon. You know how fridays can get and the weekend, so give this a bump if you find it slip down the page.
(((hugs)))

I am so sorry. I have ms and lupus plus RA and then was found to have autonomic dysfunction. Like Shell said its a double whammy. The biggest thing I struggle with is so many drs and knowing what disease is causing what symptom. Then there's the problem of you need this rx for ms but it won't mix with drugs you need for lupus or RA.etc. Very frustrating. My advice is get a good rheumatoid dr and neuro who are willing to communicate and work with each other and then just learn to roll with it. Not good advice but this is how I deal with it(although not well) right now.

I don't have both either, but I know that others have said that they did...  I'm bumping this up too.

I have been told that if you have one autoimmune disease, you are more likely to get another.

Hang in there!
