Welcome to our forum Dr. Who.  I'm very curious as to how your appointment at UPENN went. Looking at the symptoms you listed I think that any number of conditions could be the cause. The tests that are ordered really should be left to the doc, but there are many things to consider when making a diagnosis. I'm concerned about the blood in your urine (when not on your period) and I do think the doc should order a urinalysis to check for protein and blood.
There are so many possible causes of your symptoms from fibromyalgia to systemic lupus to other diseases that aren't even autoimmune. Let us know how you're doing okay?  Love, Butterflake
