My mother has Crohns – another autoimmune disease. Just wondering if anyone else has had this hereditary link as well? This is the only connection the docs can link to my Lupus diagnosis as far as family history.

I have Severe Systemic Lupus and Sjogrens. My brother was diagnosed seven years prior to me with Chrohn's disease. We were both twenty-nine. He manages it but has not had to have major surgery thank goodness. I believe there is a connection.
