I'm surprised your doctor hasn't mentioned seeing a specialist. My reagular doctor is also a internist who also specializes in bones. For the most part she can handle my problems but she really relized on a rheumy to narrow it all down. Yes it's time to seek a doctor that is not only a rheumy but make sure they know about lupus as well because not all rheumies do.
good luck and keep us informed
