What kinds of meds was he talking about
? Sometimes Lupus and other autoimmune diseases present with unusual symptoms and one way they end up doing a final diagnosis is to prescribe something like Plaquenil and/or Prednisone to see how the body responds. This would be a fairly normal initial treatment plan.
Remember, Lupus can't be diagnosed with anything as simple as a blood test -- it is diagnosed by having a collection of at least 4 of 11 symptoms. See the link diagnosing Lupus below. Your symptoms are not really the standard ones for Lupus.
Hope you feel better soon.
