I have 7 of the 11 so called indicators for Lupus, with the exception of the blood tests. These have always been corrupted because I am on warfarin. I have taken pictures of the rash on my face, which is controlled by steroids. I am having to come off the steroids because I have been on them for 2 years. They have caused my adrenals to fail, yet as the dose reduces my symptoms return. But still my Rheumatologist refuses to agree that it is lupus. I have been diagnosed with Temporal arteritis and Fibromyalgia. This has been going on for 4 years now. I have managed to convince them to put me on heparin and retake the blood clotting and ANA'a etc. I am really at the end of my tether. Any advice would be welcome.
