MCTD (mixed connective-tissue disease) is a horrible disease, which affects every side of your life. It took 10 years before my diagnosis. I have tried all the drugs with no improvement. Only CellCept helps me, but I get so many infections, that I had to stop. Next is plasmapheresis.


The term arthritis refers to stiffness in the joints. See Answer
