I was just wondering if many of you have any other autoimmune disorders besides BFS/PNH? I developed arthritis when I was only 40. I'm turning 50 tomorrow, and have had PNH almost 18 months. All of my joints ache at one time or another. The arthritis is very noticable in my hands, swollen painful joints. Just wondering if perhaps there is a pre-disposition for autoimmune diseases playing a part in this syndrome.

I have had bloodwork to rule out Rheumatoid arthritis, it came back negative, thank God.
