I have had several viral infections, like CMV, EBV, HHV6, Coxsachie, echo and entero viruses, and others. I also have several autoimmune disorders. I was wondering if there is a corolation between them. I have many disease processes going on, some just age related like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis that have no relation that I know of. Thank you for whatever information you can give me. I have myasthenia gravis, COPD, sleep apnea (central), hypothyroidism and for a short while thyrotoxicosis due to over medication), GERD, IBS, diabetes, steato hepatitis (fatty liver), Sjorgren's Syndrome, Raynaud's Disorder, bipolar depression, herniated discs, coagulation defects due to chronic infections, chronic anemia due to the same reasons. This is most of my medical history. I am just wondering what is related and what I can do about it. Thank you. bbnrse
