Hi,

I'm new to this site and have only received help from others. But, I can tell you that I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and an autoimmune disorder. My rheumatologist doesn't think it could cause the neurological symptoms and has just order physical therapy. I have read autoimmune diseases extensively and found one website (I will try to find it if you are interested) that said they can cause atypical symptoms of MS. When I worked in the hospital we had patient's with swollen hot joints related to rheumatism. I agree with the others that a rheumatologist may be of benefit to your wife. I hope she is feeling better very soon. Leslie

P.S. My EMG was normal with the fibromyalgia, but that was a year ago before the twitching and weakness was bad.
