Check out the symptoms of lupus by following the Diagnosing Lupus link in my signature. Lupus is diagnosed by having 8 or 11 symptoms -- which may or may not include the facial rash and hair loss. (I have neither of those, but most definitively have had lupus since 2002.)
Actually, the biggest question is usually not so much what the diagnosis is, but are your symptoms being treated?? You don't *have* to have joint pain or fatgiue -- those were some of my initial symptoms and have been greatly lessened by treatment!
Hope you feel better soon,
