?: The symptoms you listed can just be due to viral illness, or a reaction to a medication you are on or received lately, or something else more common than an autoimmune disorder, given that you sound healthy otherwise, kindly visit your doctor, present your concerns, it is much easier to rule out an autoimmune disease than to confirm it, wish you wellness,
