Your symptoms sound a lot like fibromyalgia. Just like Lucy was talking about. When I'm in pain and having the symptoms you mentioned, I always get my blood tested to see which disorder is flaring. My lupus or my Fibromyalgia. If the blood tests come back fine, then I know it is my Fibro.
Irritable bladder is common in Fibromyalgia. The symptoms will feel like a bladder or urinary tract infection. Did your urine come back positive for bacteria? Or were you prescribed Macrobid because you just had symptoms or pain?
Stuffy noses that produce "yuck", are one of the most common symptoms of Fibromyalgia. So is skin pain! Sometimes my skin gets so sore that I can hardly manage wearing clothing!
I would take your symptom list to your rheumatologist and ask about Fibromyalgia. There are no blood tests for it, only symptoms and physical tests to get a diagnosis. Fibro often comes along with a lupus diagnosis, or shortly after.
Let us know how you make out okay,
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
