Hello,
I am a 36 year old female with 3 boys, ages 4-9, and I work as a 911 Dispatcher. I started having symptoms about 3 years ago starting with lumbar pain. I put it off for well over a year thinking it was just over-exertion. When I couldnt take the pain anymore as it was constant, and even just turning my head to the side caused severe pain. I got to the point that standing, sitting, and …

Not yet diagnosed teen from Finland

Thu Mar 27, 2014 6:12 am by finnishgirl

Hi everyone!

I was happily suprised when I found all this great stuff for us MCTD patients! And hope to get to know some people with this illness. Because there's not a lot of stuff for us in Finland.

I'm a 15-years-old girl from Finland. I still haven't got a diagnosis for MCTD, but my rheuma specialist has suggested it after many years of different tests. And it seems to be logical, I have …

Another Australian story

Fri Nov 29, 2013 9:50 am by Ozzie1954

First of all, it is so good to find a forum with people who have been going through the same issues. I was doing a search on earache/jaw pain which is afflicting me this morning and found this forum.

My story begins in 1987 but probably goes back a lot further because of other issues that surfaced in my teens. It started after I had a bout of the flu, went back to work where I was handling …

New from California.

Fri Jul 26, 2013 10:28 pm by mollyingrid92

Hello! My name is Molly, 20 years old, California resident. At the beginning of the 2013 year I noticed I was having really bad knee pains that would last for a while. When I finally went to see my doctor, he moved my leg around to see how my knee was working. Then he did this weird on where he would put a hand flat on the side of my knee and with the other hand push on the opposite side of my …

Newbie, new to the dx, but not to the symptoms

Tue Apr 30, 2013 2:20 pm by Lenorekitty75

Hello Everyone ! Smile

Just came across this site today. Which is odd because I've been googling MCTD for months now. It's nice to know there are others out there in the world who could relate to what has become my life. Although I have frequented lupus and MS boards over the last 9 yrs and had wonderful support.

I am Christina, 37...mum of 3 the youngest is 3 and the oldest is 14. The Dr's have …

Where are people from?

Post by Katkat on Mon May 06, 2013 12:19 pm

Hi Abby, not sure if this is okay, so feel free to erase if you would prefer, but I was wondering if we could get a kind of list going, of whereabouts in the world people are from? I guess sometimes I feel really lonely, like I'm the only person around who has MCTD, so it might help everyone to not feel so alone and isolated, and could help with meds from the same country/specialists/support groups etc??

I'll start the list
