Arg! I'm not happy with your GP.
GP's are *not* fully trained in diagnosing lupus or other auto-immune diseases -- it's a specialty best handled by a rhuemy!!! I would blow off the GP's opinion/requests and stick with the rheumy -- especially if he is the one ordering meds to address the symptoms.
I'd be mad and in a bad mood too if I heard this news!
I hope your day gets better soon,
