good questions. i am a 36 yr old mom and wife of 18 yrs. i was dx in 86 with dm/pm and lupus. they are subject to flares and remissions. there are no clear cut lines to divide these diseases that i know of. they are all connective tissue diseases. my rheumatologist tells me they are basically treated the same. pm doesn't usually include muscles, only skin. dm means inflammation of skin and muscles, and lupus well it can include everything.
