So after reading those articles Im wondering what the connection between ILD and polymyositis is because my rheumy said I had myositis and then a month or two later I found out I had ILD as well. And that article seemed to say there was a connection between ILD and polymyositis?

Yes, I re-read it and it wasn't exactly clear about the connection, was it? It just said that ILD is a concern, right?
I think that this is something that you will need to really pin your docs down about. Take this info with you, and ask about the connection
Hope this helps.
All the best mate about finding out the connection..it looks well we're finding stuff out because the doctor's ah got time. xxx
