First appointment with rheumatologist

The dr has finally referred me about my symptoms and two positive lupus blood tests. I did see a rheum my 20 years ago when I was told I had rheumatism, the word for fibro I belive in those days. Just want to have a name to call my condition, is it lupus and or fibro. I also suffer from terrible ibs which my gp thinks might be all linked plus an under active thyroid, it all gets very tedious at times as I am sure it does for al of you, not sure what this consultant will be able to tell me, but I gues its worth a try!
