Besides Fibromyalgia, 'Overlap Syndrome' was my first diagnosis into the autoimmune world. Anyone else start here?
I have. I have discoid Lupus - lesions of the skin. and Mixed connective tissue disease.
I wasn't diagnosed with Overlap syndrome. I just started with the one autoimmune then ended up with the Raynauds as an overlap autoimmune, sort of my "bonus".
Yes, how did you put it "the bonus that you don't even want"? BINGO!
I have DM and Fibromyalgia. Depending on the day, my Rheumatologist also thinks that I may have either Mixed Connective Tissue Disease or Lupus. Who knows!
Oh geez, like we don't have enough already!
