    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?

    Ritz,
    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.
    Hugs,
