My neuropsych Dr was well-versed in Lupus as well as many other diseases, and didn't try to "put it off" on any diagnosis of his own. Maybe that's because he was paid by me and wasn't hired by SS, I don't know.
I do know that the more evidence that I couldn't work (due to cognitive disorder) the easier it was to get disability!!
And in the good news arena -- knowing how bad it was helped my rheumy with treatment and now I am much much better. Not quite normal, not good on a bad Lupus day, but a heck of a lot more functional than when I had the test.
