Hi Frank,
 
What is it that you're experiencing that has made your pcp want you tested?  I would highly recommend you talk with the ladies in the fibro forum.  They're fantastic.  I have fibro too, just ask whatever you need okay.  It's a bizarre disorder that mimicks lupus a lot.  I've been able to tell the difference between a lupus flare and a fibro one now. Took years to figure out the subtle differences though.  Do you feel like a big bruise all over your body?  No matter where you press your finger, you hurt?  That's a big symptom.  So is the fatigue and brain fog. 
 
I hope you get the answers you need quickly.

If you go onto the fibro forum, there is a link called "List of fibro symptoms". It's on the first page about halfway down.  There is a list of 60 symptoms, and you can see how many you have.  You'll notice that most of them are lupus symptoms too!

Frank, let us know how it goes. It does seem like there are a good number of people who have both lupus and fibro. I sometimes wonder if I've developed it recently and might ask my rheumy about it. I've been checked a few times in the past but didn't have it. Lately it seems like I have places that feel bruised to the touch, but there is no bruise.

When will you see your rheumy about the possible fibro?
Diagnosis:  UCTD (lupus) 2006; Raynauds 2006; Sjogren's 2006; lupus symptoms began 2003; CFS 1991; Mono 1985

Just what ya need huh? one more thing. I was tested for fibro I don't have it thank goodness. I have none of the points they mention I just feel like one huge bruise all over my body. Hang in there. It seems like they are just started to recognize fibro as a real disease. I feel so sorry for the people who have suffered silently because the doctors didin't beleive them.
take care let us know
huge gentle hugs
