A PCP is not trained to recognize or treat lupus. It sounds as though she is not capable of treating whatever you have going on even if it is not lupus. Lupus is not determined by "blood tests", see the 4 of 11 link in my signature.
I suggest you proceed to a rhuemotologist, who *IS* trained in these kinds of diseases, as soon as possible.
Depression is NOT characterized by mouth sores, any kind of rash, or 'freezing', or many of the other symptoms you mentioned -- and even if it was, a PCP is not trained in how to treat depression, that is a psychiatrist! And sometimes other drs when depression is caused by an illness or by meds *such as lupus and prednisone).
Your mouth sores and your "freezing" may be a single symptom of fever...if you read in the Lupus Resources thread *2ond from top) you will find what to look for in a lupus dr and what to expect at teh first appointment.
