Jul 28, 2013 · MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease) in Autoimmune Diseases

Hi! I’m newly diagnosed with MCTD. I’m 32 years old, married and gave two young girls. I work full time and I’m very type A. Honestly, my symptoms haven’t disabled me, but right now the fatigue and trouble sleeping are bringing me down.
Can anyone offer suggestions to help deal with the aches and pains at night? Ideas for combating the daytime fatigue? Right now, I depend on coffee and energy drinks to make it through work. At night, I’ll take Benadryl if it gets bad enough to knock me out. :/
I appreciate any and all advice. Thanks in advance!

Hi, all. I’m 32 and just diagnosed with mctd about a month ago. Literally started Plaquenil about three days ago and I take Mobic every day. I am not in nearly as severe a situation as some of you , but my condition was described as still emerging. I wish you all the best and hope to learn from you who have dealt with this disease longer than I have.
