I think I've probably had Lupus for at least 3 years, the final straw was a huge left sided swelling to which they referred me to a hand specialist who promptly told me it was because I was fat and needed physio ! I went back to see various GPS who all told me the same, one day I was in tears with my hands and I got a locum who went mad and said I needed to see a rheumatologist who promptly diagnosed Lupus. I'm curious as to why he kept looking at my feet and legs though??
