Autoimmune: There is no way one can learn about autoimmune disorders without spending some time learning about a normal immune system. Find a basic book on the immune system, read it, and then delve into immunity disorders where there is failure of the system to recognize tissues as "self". That is what autoimmune disorders are all about

Yes it is autoimmune: Autoimmune it is. Drugs to treat it affect the immune system, and dampen an inappropriate immune response to your muscle.
