    Typically, if a person has one AI disease, there is a much greater chance of having another so it isn't uncommon at all to have more than one. Are you frightened by the multiple diagnosis? Have you talked about this with your doctor? Understanding your illnesses better might help you feel more confident that they can be managed and you can have as long a life as you would without the dx. Good luck!
