lupus and narcolepsy

Narcolepsy has recently been found to be an autoimmune disorder. I was diagnosed with lupus about 12 years ago and narcolepsy within the last year. The studies I have read state the immune system attacks the part of the brain that produces the chemical that regulates REM sleep. I am wondering if anyone else has narcolepsy that seems to be caused by lupus?
