Sorry you are so discouraged. *sighhhhh* Is your current rheumy do anything to treat your symptoms?? If not or if the treatment is not satisfactory, and he knows it . . . than I don't blame you for moving on. He should at least be treating your symptoms. Lots of us don't have a definitive dx . . . or we are dx'd and undx'd from time to time . . . but we still get treatment for our problems.
There is a link at the end of my signature titled "Lupus Chapter Locater". If you click on that link and find your nearest Lupus Foundation Chapter, you can call, email or write to them and they will send or email a copy of Dr. referrals in your area.
I would also suggest going to a local chapter support group, if there is one in your area, to talk to local members who can give you the good, the bad and the ugly about
Hopefully, some of the members here will have a tip for your area as well. If there is a long waiting list (often a couple months or more), make sure to ask to be put on the "cancellation list". Sometimes if they know you can take a last minute appointment when others cancel, you can get in much faster.
Good luck finding a new rheumy!!
