Worry and stress are one of the worse things for a person with any illness, especially possible autoimmune like lupus, as your subcontious actually makes you sicker as odd as that seems. I know it's hard, but speaking from experience (and it's taking me many, many years) you have to go with what the experts are recommending if it sounds reasonable and wait for the results.
I would agree that a hemotologist sounds like the correct person to see if you are having issues regarding blood cells. If you were seeing a rheumatologist he or she would refer you to one anyway to have that checked out as that is not their specialty.
I only wish our Rheumy's were a one stop shop, but unfortunately that's not the case, try as they might they do send us on when things are out of their realm of expertise.
I hope you can get an appt soon so you can find the answers/solutions needed to get on track to feeling better.
