Welcome to the forum Tick,
There are some helpful links at the end of my signature. The criteria for diagnoses that Joinery was telling you about
is in one of those links: "Lupus Criteria 4 of 11"
This can be a long process, trying to figure out what, exactly is going on.
I hope you'll keep us updated.
