On Monday I was told by a doctor at the hospital that she had talked to several of her fellow colleagues and that they believe I have SLE and to get an appointment at my surgery and get referred to the rheumatology department ASAP. But today I saw a nurse practitioner and she made me feel as if I was being daft, saying there's nothing in my blood results to suspect sle. Don't know whether she was implying I'm a liar or the hospital doctors incompetent. This is all before the antibody test. Is this common for no obvious signs to show up in a basic blood test?
