Hi, I'm new this forum but have been a member on nras for almost a year. Originally when my symptoms started Dec 2015 myself, family and gp thought it was RA causing all my problems. I finally got to see a rheumatologist September 2016 and he is pretty sure I have fibromyalgia, after having a ultrasound of both hands this morning showing no joint inflammation I'm beginning to believe him. The thing that's concerning me is that I found out from my gp that I have also been tested for lupus, after doing a bit of research I'm a little worried that it may well be lupus as I have been having a lot of skin sensitivity when out in the sun (really itchy random rashes), I already have been diagnosed with mental health but if it is fibro or lupus that may explain the sudden onset of my mental health etc. I'm not asking for a diagnosis from this forum as that is impossible but anyone who does not mind sharing there symptoms from having lupus would be very much appreciated. Sorry for the long winded post
