Hi Watcher, I'm sorry you have not been able to find someone to chat with about
Wegeners. There were a couple of people with that diagnosis on the Lupus forum
and someone who used to post also on the fibro forum.

I know that it is an autoimmune disease that affects the vascular system and lungs.
I have MCTD (lupus, Scleroderma & RA). I hope the Imuran is helping...I was on
that for awhile before I was switched over to MTX. I notice you have fibro also.
This is a wonderful forum for caring support. We all help eachother get through
tough times. There are many people on this forum with multiple dx's. We are very
supportive and willing to help.

Hugs, Robin
