I hope you have an appointment with your doctor to go over your bloodwork and to talk about what your next step is. It's hard to keep from worrying when you don't know what's wrong with you, isn't it.

Check out the Resources page on the main lupus page here. There is a lot of information there including things like what to do to prepare for your doctor's appointment, and some good information about lupus.

You've come to the right place to get information and support and I'm only sorry I don't have time to write more. I'm sure others will check in with you. Let us know more about you and how you're feeling.

Hi Babe,
It sounds like you need a referal to a rheumatologist.  Talk to your dermatologist and see if they can get you an appointment.  Take pictures of any rashes you get too.
