Well went to see my Rhuemy last week and she is sure I have Anti- synthetase Syndrome with overlapping Systemic Scleroderma and Myositis.

I had a EMG which showed onset Myositis with unknown cause. What is that supposed to mean???

I will be either starting cytoxan or doing IVIG, which ever the Anti Synthetase Syndrome specialist recommends for me. My Rhuemy feels the cytoxan would help me most as I have eye involement as well.

So we will see what happens. Really dont like being on toxic meds with just a "thinks" knows whats wrong diagnosis.
