Welcome to the forum.
There are some matching symptoms. Problem is: Lupus mimics so many diseases. If this is your short list, I would suggest that you check the links provided at the end of my signature. There is lots of great information there and you may see some more symptoms that match. Are you sensitive to the sun? rashes? mouth sores? rash on your cheeks? Each of us has a different combination of symptoms and none of us has all of them. Actually, colitis can cause a lot of your symptoms too, if that happened to flare. But the plueresy is a red flag for lupus.
One of the links is "4 of 11 criterea". That may help too.
I know that a lot of the symptoms for lymes and lupus are very similar. If you still have concerns that it may be lupus, you should probably see a rheumatologist who specializes in lupus. Other doctors just don't have the background to dx or treat lupus. . . . and you may end up frustrated, as this disease usually takes a LONG time to dx anyway. Many of us waited years for a dx.
I hope you'll keep us updated!
