You need to make an appointment to see your primary care doctor ofra rheumatologist to be evaluated. Before your appointment make a detailed list of your medical history and any and all symptoms, past or present, whether or not you think they are related.
But before you do anything else, stay out of the sun. Please. If you have lupus, being in the sun is the worst thing you can do for your health, and it appears that you've already made that connection. Take care of yourself and get as much rest as possible. Make sure you feed your body good healthy food.
