Hello. I saw a rheumatologist yesterday who said he felt my symptoms fitted lupus more than anything thing else, although I am still undiagnosed as I don't meet enough of the criteria. My main symptoms are bilateral swollen hands, every morning, and random pains. I have a positive ANA and low white cells. I also have type 1 diabetes and hypothyroidism. I don't really know anything about lupus and some of the things I have read make for scary reading.
