I agree with Rosie and Lynnwood too. Keep a daily diary of all your symptoms, how much sleep you get, the food you eat, etc... Your symptoms do sound like autoimmune in nature for sure. Just have to figure out which one(s) you have.
The internal tremor you mentioned is VERY common in lupus. We actually have a thread dedicated to that particular symptom. Somewhere on here. NOt sure how far back it went. LOTS of us have that. Feels like an internal buzz doesn't it? I get that as one of my main symptoms when my lupus is in a flare up. That is something a rheumatologist would understand if you mentioned it. I agree that you should get a referal to see a rheumatologist. Get some blood work done, and go through all your symptoms with them.
Getting a lupus diagnosis can take years to get. HOwever, if everything happens to line up perfectly, it can come sooner. I'm glad to know you don't have MS. That is a relief for you I'm sure.
Costochondritis is very common in Fibrolyalgia. that is a hightened pain disorder. It can happen alone or along with lupus. I have both. The fibromyalgia forum might be one for you to check in with as well. Lupus and fibro mimick each other a lot. Fatigue, pain, etc, is what fibro is all about too. Just one more resource for you to check out!
