I was wondering if you have any autoimmune illnesses in your family. I have just been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis but I am the only person in my family who has an autoimmune condition ~ Alice

Hi Alice, sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis and I hope you can get everything under control really quickly!

I have a really strong family history of autoimmune conditions including Lupus, both seropositive and seronegative Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis and Raynauds. But just because no one in your family has an autoimmune condition doesn’t mean you can’t develop one, just like having a strong history of autoimmune diseases doesn’t mean you are going to get one too.
