Hi, I saw a rheumatologist on Wednesday after a v.long wait for a referral. We went through my entire medical history and my current terrible symptoms (the joint pain is agony) and she was pretty convinced on Lupus as I ticked off the majority of the listed criteria. However, my GP who had pre-empted the potential diagnosis, had run some bloods last week and my ANA was negative. Could I still have lupus? And if not, what other illnesses match the same symptoms?! Really wanting answers after years of illness and pain. Thanks
