I'm in the same predicament. My first rheumatologist told me I had SLE because I had 5 indicators. After a year of him not helping some new symptoms I switched to a new rheumatologist. This one diagnosed me with possibly sero-negative psoriactic arthritis and doubts the SLE diagnosis.
My belief is as long as my symptoms are well treated it doesn't matter the name of the disease.
Lupus, RA, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, Depression, Allergies, diabetes, and benign familia tremors
When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
