Here's a list of the top 64 Autoimmune Diseases,

Each has it's own list of symptoms but any of these can worsen the symptoms of PMS/PMDD. Some of these have have links to descriptions and to more details here, if we know any of our members with one of these disorders we will add more research details. You may also want to copy and paste any of the following into a Google search from more information and websites devoted to the disorder. Many times you'll find more than one autoimmune condition within the same individual. It's not uncommon to see Celiac and Type 1 diabetes in the same person, or IBS/IBD and gluten intolerance.

Where Do Autoimmune Diseases Come From?

According to Drs. Isenberg and Morrow the onset of an autoimmune disease would require a combination of several factors going wrong at the same time.

Cited as possibilities are: genetic predisposition, hormonal influences, enzyme abnormalities, stress, diet, ultraviolet light and micro-organisms like bacteria and viruses.

These types of factors influence immune system health and status. They also state, “Autoimmune diseases can result from several different defects, combinations of defects, in the immune system…” 

[font="Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"]It might be worthy to note that in spite of the fact that there are over 60 autoimmune related diseases recognized with over 60 different symptoms, the reason they all exist is due to immune system malfunction. That is the deep, core issue.
