I have cfs, reynauds, fibro, narcolepsy w/insomnia. I now learn that they all may be autoimmune. What tests and what viruses can I expect? Inherited/gen

In brief: Only Raynaud's

Only raynaud's could be secondary to an autoimmune disorder. Cps, fibromyalgia and narcolepsy are not autoimmune.
I seriously doubt your cfs diagnosis if you indeed have narcolepsy with insomnia.

In brief: Genetics to autoimmu

The link that most have invovled is the hla typing.
Specifically hla b and d types. This is a blood test. Other testing can be done on spinal fluid but less accessible.
