Thanks to all who replied to my question about getting diagnosed it's been a great help! As I have now been to see rheumy I am now more confused, after chatting to her about all my symptoms etc. she has said I have fibromyalgia and discharged me. I'm not sure to be relieved to get a diagnosis or not I am already taking codeine for pain and have prescription for amitriptyline but quite honestly can't take it as I have 2 young children and it just worsens the symptoms but she insists I take it in the afternoon of which I have done but can hardly function so not sure to persevere with it so apart from that the doctor will now deal with me and not sure what other meds are available until I see her. she did say the positive Ana tests which I had didn't apply as half the population would have them positive?
In a way slight relief as have a reason for my constant shoulder pain and bad posture due to tired muscles as have had scans and physio to no avail so it sort of makes sense but I really did think it was lupus.
Is there any other blood tests that indicate lupus? I'm thinking should I have not had them to rule it out or should I just accept a professional diagnosis?
