Following 4 months of illness. 3 stays in hospital and a million scans and blood tests my respiratory consultant told me yesterday that he's pretty sure I have lupus. All of the relevant blood tests were positive etc. I have an apt with a rheumatologist next week but in a different area so they won't have access to my medical notes and results etc. I don't really want to have to do all the tests again but am eager to get a quick diagnosis and treatment. Any suggestions?
