Hi all,
I have my first appointment with a Rheumatologist this coming Monday and wonder if there are certain key questions that I should be asking him.  My anti double stranded dna is positive, and I have more than 4 of the 11 symptoms for Lupus....just looking forward to getting to the bottom of this.
 
Thanks

Check out our Lupus Resources thread at:
www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=29&m=184347

It includes suggestions from multiple members about what to ask doctors, what information to take to the doctors,and various other hints...a good place to start.

Let us know if you have more specific questions for us!
