Hi I have just found this site and feel like it's going to be such a relief to know I'm not alone. I have been suffering for about 6_7 years my GP firmly believes I have lupus ,and so do I. I have seen rheumatology ,the first 2 really didn't want to know and told me all sorts of disappointing info like ..it's the end of the road for you nothing we can do or diagnose, the other told me to learn to manage my pain...thought I had no choice but to with that one. The last rheumatology was much better listened to my symptoms ect saw pics of my rash and said I believe it's lupus and fybro myalgia, but won't diagnose until bloods are back, my bloods came back and she then really didn't want to know. The final visit was last year and she said I can't diagnose lupus...but I'm not saying it isn't either. So I was rushed into hospital last weekend in agony ,and just want a diagnosis now I'm sick of being on a string with no answers. No one in my area seems to know much about it but want to see lupus specialists who know what they're doing , I go to the Walton every 3 months for migraine treatment, is there anyone there or even Dudley that could listen to me. I'm desperate please anyone.
