I have suffered with depression and eczema for most of my life. Then I develooped reoccuring bronchitis. pneumonia and pleuresy. Then severe infected sinuses which required surgery. Then I developed arthuritis in my neck and shoulder. Then within the last year I have developed high blood pressure, very dry skin, Raynaud's syndrome, asthma and now lichen sclerosus out of the blue. I am baffled and very upset. Can anyone help shed some light on this for me?

Sounds like you have something auto immune going on.  Here is a link to the classic symptoms of lupus.  If you have any 4 you probably have it and need to see a doctor who is experienced in it.
