It does sound like autoimmune issues, but I'm no doctor (I just play one on tv).😆
If you're rheumatologist won't pursue your complaints find another who will. Lupus is tricky to diagnose so sometimes you have to keep searching. A good rheumatologist uses the 11 indicators list for lupus. You need to meet four of the eleven to be diagnosed.
Lupus, RA, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, Depression, Allergies, and benign familia tremors

Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
