A good rhuemy uses the 11 indicators for lupus. You need to meet 4 of the 11 to be diagnosed. The list can be found at lupus.org.
It's hard to wait for a diagnosis, but it's tricky to diagnose lupus. Try not to fret too much until your visit to the doctor.
I pray you don't have this....
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, Allergies, and benign familia tremors
When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
