MCTD Support Group

Mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) or Sharp's syndrome is a human autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the body. MCTD combines features of polymyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and systemic scleroderma and is thus considered an overlap syndrome. MCTD commonly causes joint pain/swelling, Raynaud phenomenon, muscle inflammation, and scarring of the skin of the hand.

I haven't tried it......a friend of mine is going to try it for migraines. What are you hoping it will help?

I am hoping it will help my wrinkles:). I haven't had it since I was diagnosed with MCTD, so I am wondering if it will adversely affect my disease.
