It is important to keep your Drs informed when you change your eating habits. With Lupus, an anti-inflammatory diet may be the EXACT WRONG THING to do, depending on what plan of treatment your Dr has in mind. It is very important to tell your Dr if you are eating specifically for a disease you think you might have.
Also make sure you don't take over the recommended amounts of any over the counter medications (like the ibuprofen mentioned above), and make sure the Drs are aware of what you are taking and how much. These things can skew the tests and interfere with getting a proper diagnosis.
Remember people posting here are not Drs, and remember that walking into a Dr's office and telling them the diagnosis is a sure-fire way to get a Dr with a closed mind. You hire them to keep an
open mind and consider all the possibilities, not just the ones you've read about
on the internet. I highly recommend going into the Dr with a list of SYMPTOMS, not a list of diagnoses! You'll get much better results that way, I promise.
