New here! I have been struggling for years and for years I've been told Rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia etc etc etc. Recently at a hospital appointment, my rheumatologist said I tested positive for Lupus/SLE. However, he isn't going to start any treatment until he tests again in 12 weeks time. Now my question is, how long did it take to be finally diagnosed and given treatment and have any of you had a symptom of sharp chest pains and heart beating so fast it's like it's about to jump out your chest? When I say this I mean it happens just with sitting reading my book or watching to. And it also feels like it's tightening quite a lot and more frequently!
