Interesting enough, I have also been diagnosed with rhematoid (excuse spelling) arthritis as well as kidney issues along with alopecia. Doctors have recently told me that these links classify me as having lupus. Pretty Crazy

I hope you are all coping as well as you can with these horrible conditions, and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. xxx

Well mine is little odd " at least that's what my doctor said.
Alopecia Areata, Graves Disease(hyperthyroidism), Sjogrens Syndrome, I test positive for Rheumatoid Arthritis for 3 years ( just started w hand swelling about 6 months ago), Sjogrens related Arthritis and Fibromyalgia along with Manieres Disease. (cronis dizzy spells and ringing in ears....
Ooyyee, what a mess I am. I rely on God, the benefits of Yoga and meditation for pain control as I am allergic to opiates'. Only NSIADS for me. But it keeps me going. I work full time and volunteer at my church one day a week. Praise God. He's the fuel that keeps this body going.... thanks, Kat.

Hi everyone, I just received an email about a research study for Psoriasis and thought I'd pass it along.  See below:

Do you or a loved one have severe Psoriasis all over your body? If so, you may qualify for research studies in the area.

Those who qualify for these studies may receive:

  • Payment (or ) Compensation of $300 - $400
  • No-cost study medication for Psoriasis

No-cost care from a local doctor  

This research study is enrolling now. Click here and take the next step and see if you may qualify.

If you have already completed this survey or know anyone you feel may qualify, please forward this email on. The closest location is in , though this study is being conducted around the country by local doctors who specialize in treatment of Psoriasis.

Thank you!

Hi. I am new to this group and been on this site for about a month. I have AA, Hoshimoto, IBS, other skin conditions that knowone has diagnosed they just guess, Dry eyes, (non-diabetic) low blood sugar, neuropathy with no known cause etc. I use to feel like a hypocondriac with all these illnesses and I am sure others thought I was. I wish I could have just 1 day where I didn't itch or was tired, or stomach issues, etc. just 1 day where I felt great.. I also have Major depressive disorder I think I have it because of all these illnesses. I try not to complain about hem because I am sure knowone wants to hear it. I have had health issues since I was born and I am 62 now so it is really getting old and so am I LOL. Trying to have a sense of humor.

I'm not sure if this group is still active, but in searching for multiple autoimmune disease groups, this one came up.  Looking for anyone who has alopecia (frontal fibrosing alopecia specifically) and vitiligo.  I have vitiligo universalis, psoriasis and just now diagnosed with FFA and I'm being tested for hypothyroidism.  Surely, there is a correlation between all these diseases?

Hello All, I have had eczema all my life, AA the past 8 yrs on and off, other than the patches I never lost, no new regrowth in 6 months, mild asthma, mild hypothyroid, off meds to see if it helps hair regrow, IBS only in highly stressful situation, various eye problems including dry eye, itchy eyes and always feeling like there's something in my eye. Nice to hear other people's stories.

Hi Pat,
I take a form of plaquenil, but I dont have any of the issues you spoke of and its taken 99% of the pain away.

I do believe this is all linked with having a leaky gut
