Ladybug, I've been tested for dermatomyositis, It is sometimes part of the MCTD

Dermatomyositis is an autoimmune connective tissue disease. Muscle weakness
and rash are the two main symptoms. There are a few cancers that are
sometimes associated with it...ovarian, breast and melanoma are the ones I
know of.

I'm sorry about your aunt and will say a prayer for her.

Hugs, Robin
