    I was diagnosed with FMS 4 years ago. Last spring during a checkup with my rheumatologist I told him about some other problems I'd been having like fever and mouth ulcers. He did a test for lupus and told me my ANA was a low-positive. Things have been steadily getting worse. I have had to quit working (I was a teacher) and am trying to get disability benefits from my insurance company. I have not found any site that discussed this combination of disorders. Is there anyone else out there dealing with both? or Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disorder?

    I do have Fm and connectives tissue. I was diagnosed with the connective tissue first, then the Fm.
    I have recently got a fully favorable decision from the Judge and am awaiting to hear when my benefits will start.
    There is a lot of info on this site.
