In brief: Possible, Not common

One can always have two diseases at the same time, but typically physicians look for one disease with the combination of symptoms patients present with.
There can be "overlap" between the symptoms of various auto-immune diseases, so its best to see a well trained rheumatologist to help with your diagnosis.
