What kind of Dr made this report? I think she meant "consistent with Lupus", in that Lupus could fit as a possible diagnosis.
A rheumotologist is the Dr trained in diagnosing and treating inflammatory diseases - there are many like Lupus that overlap. A general Dr or someone in another specialty may act like they are suitable for treating, but they really are not.
Can you tell us a little about
which specialties have been consulted and what they are saying? Maybe we'll have more ideas with more information.
Hang in there!
