I also have a cousin with lupus and my aunt has polyarthralgia rheumatica...both of them are on my dad's side. So yes, stuff does run in families.

Blessed be.

Becky, you do have your hands full. For those who deny auto-immune runs in families, you prove my case. Ours came from my Grandmother (don't know how far back before her, nobody knows. She was bedridden for may years, and back then everything was called pleurisy), through all of my Fathers' Family (almost every one of them had or has one kind or another. Some of them have more than one kind. My Sister, and my niece have 4 types each. My Rheumatologist told me I am the lucky one - I only have RA. No one has identified ET as auto-immune, but I have my suspicions. It is definitely familial.
Keep on doing what you're doing. Keep in touch. We'll be here for you.

Welcome to the team!

My husband and I both have RA, my daughter has lupus and my son has a new MS diagnosis, so we have lots of autoimmune stuff going on. Feel free to spark mail me if you want.


Blessed be.

You might check in with some of the arthritis sites on Spark. They are all very friendly, and you will have more of a variety of people to learn from.
