Apr 8, 2018 · PLEASE HELP ME! UNDIAGNOSED in Autoimmune Diseases

Your symptoms sound just like mine and I have MCTD Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. I have muscle inflammation as well. I also have Lupus of the skin. Do you have a Rheumatologist? If not mention to your family doctor that you would like to be referred so you can find out exactly what is going and what it is that you have. You could also have Myofascial pain too. I have that as well. I hope this helps you

Have you ever been tested for anything other than Mixed Connective Tissue Disease? You also mentioned that it's hard for you to swallow. I have the same problem only it's not just with medication it's with anything.

It's really hard to tell you how I deal with fatigue. It can really get you down and I am being as honest as I can be. Rest can be a good way to deal with the fatigue you have. It makes me more and more depressed and it can make me quite upset. I am still learning about the MCTD and any input on it I would be very grateful so I can learn more to understand this disease. On my bloodwork, my level was 100. The value is supposed to be 0-19. Mine is pretty high. Ugh!!!

Apr 6, 2018 · MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease) in Autoimmune Diseases

I was diagnosed with MCTD in 2012. It surely has not been an easy road for sure not. You learn hpw to take one day at a time literally. In the back of your mind you will wonder when am I going to have a gpod day. Or is this going to be a good day for me. This disease will get you down for sure and you will always think what can I do to make it better. We will have this disease for the reat of our lives. And we have to learn to deal with it. Fatigue is the number one thing with me. It sucks to have this and woth someone that doesn't have it qill never understand why you are the way you are and no matter how many times you explain it, you will always say the same thing. All you can do is pray that things get better and hope you can find a way to feel human again. Im not saying this rp get you down. I am saying it because like you WE live it everyday. I hope things get better and we can find a way to learn to live with tbis disease. I hope you get ypur spirit back. Do something you enjoy for you. That's what I try to do. Hope I said something to help you!
