Have you been for sure diagnosed? I have not. I am still waiting. My rhumy has rescheduled twice on me so when I see my ENT tomorrow I will ask if he can do the test. What are your symptoms?

Do you ever go through episodes where you feel really good with almost no symptoms?

Yes and those are great times but then there are times that I feel like I am 80 yrs. old but it hasn't been as bed now that I am on the meds.
I was told I had lupus 5 yrs. ago was on meds for yrs. got a job that had ins. went to a Dr. on there list she sent mre to a new ruma. that sholdn't be a Dr. he saw me for 5 min. said go off your meds you have fibro. The Drs. took me off the meds my life went to poo for about 6 months they kept telling me I had depresion and told me I needed to take two antidepresants and take a 2 mile walk a day and get in touch with nature and also see a shrink!!!!! well I told them what to do out in nature and where to put the pills and go to the shrink themselves that the pain is real and I wasn't going for there diagnoses! they sent me to a hosp. in Portland and guess what....I have lupus!!
I lost my job over it and have alot of hard feelings twords the Drs.. I was in so much pain for 6 months I had forgotten how bad the pain was that I went threw for 2 yrs. befor they could figure out what was wrong with me at the beginning. So if they don't diagnose you this time don't give up.

Hey there Lynn,
I was diagnosed with Lupus in March of 2009 based on 3 criteria, Joint Pain, a false positive syphylis test and a positive ANA.  So far I haven't had anything else like malar rashes, extreme fatigue, hair falling out, problems with the sun, or any organ involvement, thank god.  My rhuemy seems to think that the plaquenil is definitely doing it's job and keeping the disease at bay.  Probably be on it the rest of my life.  Hope you have a good day!!
Hugs and Angels,
Lynnette
