I believe there are a couple of folks that have Crohns and Lupus on this forum. I know IDES and MMMNavy both have it, hopefully one of them will be along soon.

Good luck!

I'm another one with Lupus too. Have they done the ANA blood work on you. If so how high was the titer levels?

I do not know the answer to your question, but I have heard that having one autoimmune disease may increase the risk of getting another. I have been tested for Lupus at least 3 times in the last 6 years, too. My ANA levels have been OK each time, though. It is very frustrating and scary. I understand your frustration.
Best of luck!

Hi, I've had Lupus for the past 11 years and then diagnosed with polymyositis last year and then diagnosed with Crohn's this year. Three autoimmune diseases. Fun!
