The Lupus Resources thread (at the top of the previous page) also has a list of suggests of what to take and what to do when seeing a rheumy for the first time.
You can start by listing your symptoms and when they occur. And by taking your previous lab results with you. Don't try to use a lot of makeup to "look good" to the Dr - you want them to observe you as you are.
Try not to worry. Worry is an insidious beast that just steals today away from us. And the stress it causes generally makes our symptoms worse.
