Do you suffer from unexplained fatigue, muscle weakness, muscle pain, joint pain, low grade fever and are prone to infections among others? If you do, chances are you might be suffering from an autoimmune condition. But which one?

Discover that there are many autoimmune conditions that share the same symptoms so the correct diagnosis is essential to improving your health. If you read this book, you will learn about undifferentiated connective tissue disease (UCTD) including how to recognize the symptoms and handle the disease. Recognize the differences among UCTD, Lupus, Scleroderma, Fibromyalgia and other autoimmune conditions.

Know that you are not alone when you are told you are crazy or faking your symptoms. Some individuals, doctors included, still think the disease is all in the patient’s head. However, Dr. Jessica Berman posited that the disease is REAL and the term “undifferentiated” in UCTD simply indicates that patients have not “differentiated” into having well-defined connective tissue diseases (CTD) issues.

If you feel isolated, and you lack support from family and friends, then you will want to read chapter 4. Learn how to explain the disease and your limitations to your friends and family. Understand that you will need to learn to separate good and bad health advice and not be afraid to take charge of your own health. To this end, the book also has 70 references to help you grasp a deeper understanding of your disease and the options available to you.

As you read this book, you will also learn how to apply practical solutions on living with and managing this disease. Learn how diet, exercise and alternative therapies can all combine to improve your quality of life even IF you are off medication. Additionally, if you only followed ONE piece of advice from this book, practice reducing your stressors to positively impact your health - that is a promise.
