hi tink, there is a couple of threads that may be of interest to you.
i have mentioned these to help your understanding on what lupus is, and so you can see many of the other auto immune disorders.
lupus can attack different people in different ways, so even though we have similar issues, often our problems appear very differently.
your doctors have already proven that your auto immune system is in overdrive ..... azathioprine and mesalazine both help your condition.
so it is possible that you may have other auto immune problems also. many of us have more than 1 problem, and often develop more problems as our disorders progress.
luckly many of the disorders use the same types of medications .... so even though the doctors do not yet know exactly what is wrong .... they can treat your symptoms.
i wish you success in a diagnosis, but please do not think you need a diagnosis to obtain treatment. it helps, but is not always essential.
please keep us informed as your journey continues.
