So my rheum hinted that he thought things pointed at lupus, today i saw someone else in the practice and she said she would say mixed connective tissue disease (mctd).

She's wanting to put me on plaquenil and gave me Vimovo and Duexis.

What is the difference really, between sle and mctd? Isn't it better to have lupus than a mixed bag? Is mctd just a catch all for "no clue?"
