I'm talking to my doctor next week and will be asking them to test for Lupus. Can anyone advise me of what I should ask for. I have what might be the malar rash reoccurring for years (but it was diagnosed as sebhorrheic dermatitis, despite not covering the nasolabeal folds and fitting all the signs of a malar rash, I find that a moisturiser from dermaologica helps with it but not all the time), fatigue, aches and pains (amitriptaline helps a bit), hands turn blue/purple in cold (holding a cold drink will hurt), IBS, GERD (on high dose esomaprozole), frequent urination, concentration and memory poor, sores up nose occasionally, mildly elevated liver enzymes on every blood test.
I realise it might not be Lupus but any advice on how to proceed and talk to the Doctor would be appreciated, as well as advice on whether the symptoms I've included would fit with your experiences of Lupus?
Thank you in advance
