I can understand the not feeling well and feeling like your body is "failing" you. I personally felt that way in the beginning and hard days right now.

But Lupus takes a while to diagnose. You need to see a Rheumatologist and he will make the medical diagnosises for you.

As the "not seeking treatment" aspect I think that's a little silly. 80-90% of Lupus patients live a normal life span with treatment. A lot of Lupus patients go into remission. I'm personally still in the barely diagnosed trying to figure out meds phase. It's really hard in the beginning but you just have to listen to your doctors.

You should tell your GP about your thoughts.

I'm sorry you're feeling so badly and I hope you find answers. I have no idea if you have Lupus your experience is way different than mine but whatever your answer is I hope it's found. Good luck!
