Hi Tibbi, welcome to the group. I just got done taking a nap and came in to see what's new. I hate to break this to you but no you are not to old to get lupus. I'm 53 and I just start getting some answers around 50. Several people here are my age or a little older. However you won't get the women to admit it! LOL. Hey this disease may do a lot of things but it doesn't have the right to tell everyone our age. If you have Hashimoto's it is quite possible that you you have other autoimmune disease. The overlap quiet often. If you go through here and look at peoples signatures many times you will see they name 2 3 or 4 different things they have. Let us know what the doctor says and and don't get to freaked out. This disease does not often mean the death sentence that it used to be. and many people on the right meds live a normal life and an excellent quality of life.
keep coming ack and asking questions and keep us informed we have a large support group here.
