I agree with the others, you need to get a second opinion from a rheumy who is interested in having her feeling better. What you're getting now is nothing but a run-a-round which obviously isn't helping her health.
Check out www.lupus.org
to find the nearest chapter, then check their website to see which local doctors are on their board of directors -- those are the docs you want to choose from. They'll be the ones most interested in Lupus.
Hope you find better help soon,
