What to post on auto-immune conditions

Post by sophie » 24 Apr 2013 17:40

This folder is purely for MDS patients who also have experience of some form of auto-immune conditions - such as:
:arrow: chronic joint inflammation
:arrow: low platelet counts of unknown cause
:arrow: blood vessel inflammation
:arrow: muscle pain in hips or shoulders
:arrow: artery inflammation
:arrow: psoriasis

:?: There is some research done on a potential link between the two types of conditions - and we want to hear from people on this topic.
Please post your experience of auto-immune conditions and treatment - keep it clear and concise please - as we may use the information on here in future - but don't include personal contact data.

Here are 2 articles on this topic:
