I have one your list. Lupus. SLE. I have a few syndromes rolling around. Some of us just have Lupus, but many have secondary disease or syndromes...

hi bte,

WOW, you have really had a tough time these past 4 years. My name is Phyllis, i have sle, raynauds's, fibromyalgia and sjorgen's. I do not have any of your other illnesses, but i have seen members post about diabetes, so i am sure others will be along who can share more with you.

We have several men here, and they all deal with a variety of overlapping diseases/syndromes. I am sure Rob will be along, and he suffers with sle and ms. There is a lot of experience and knowledge within the members of this family, and we are always available to help, answer questions, or just listen while one vents.

hope you are doing ok. This is a great group, and i hope you find enough common ground to hang around.

hi bte!
I am 31yr old. I also have diabetes and a decade of unexplained medical phenomenia. :shocked: I am awaiting a formal diagnosis but have multiple symptoms of both Lupus & Reynaurds. One rheumy I saw also thinks I have Rhuematoid Arthritis or Psoriatic Arthritis but isn't sure which (she is betting on PsA). You are in the right place to meet the people you are looking to find. :yes: There's also a Men's Forum on the main page of this site that might be of interest to you.
