With a history of family RA, I'd check out the website www.arthritis.org/conditions-treatments/disease-center/rheumatoid-arthritis/
. If you can find a local chapter of the arthritis group, they should have an advisory board that includes local rheumies. I would look there for a Dr who has more interest in actually treating RA.
Or if you have other lupus symptoms (follow diagnosing lupus link below) and are leaning toward lupus, check out [url[www.lupus.org for local chapters & active, interested Drs.
