Hi all, wondering if anyone else has this question , my diagnoses ( as stated in letter to gp I have a copy sent to me) says I have. SLE , Sorgrens , mixed connective tissue disease, dermatomyositis , fibromyalgia, raynaulds , and GERD caused by hiatus hernia, how confusing ?? So when I have pain or other problems I don't know what's causing it . This lupus gets more confusing as time goes on ( was first diagnosed 2010) each time I see my consultant he seems to add to the list , is it him confused or me ? Is it possible for a person to have all these things at once ?? Anyone else had this ?? X

Hi Skid,

Have you received one of our information packs? We also do a variety of factsheets including our 'Lupus and Mixed Connective Tissue Disease' and one on 'Lupus and Associated Conditions'.

If you think it would be helpful i can pop those into the information pack and post them to you. Just send me a quick private message or an email with your name and address and i will arrange for it to be sent out to you.

You can also find information on the Raynauds & Scleroderma Association's website here -

If you need anything else please do let me know.

Best wishes,




Thank you Hayley I have sent you private message hope you get it let me know if you don't. Thankyou Suzanne .


Hi Skid, wow, so many autoimmune disorders, I do not have as many, but am aware lots of Auto Immune disorders cross over and merge which I guess from a diagnosing perspective must be so difficult. I hope you've got some great treatment, take care CV
