I am new here too, and experience some of the same things you are. I would not have thought to add the cough that started in October of last year, until I read your post.
I am not as well informed as others are at the forum, but i can listen. Your symptoms to me sound like Lupus. and at the very least, maybe your doctor could do the blood tests for you that can indicate Lupus.
Please keep us posted on how things are going for you. I learn something new everytime i go to this forum to check the posts.
Sometimes it just helps to have a name and reason for the symptoms. And it really helps a lot to know that we are not alone, that many across the country, around the world probably are going through the same things that we are going through.
