Lupus is very sneaky, and is often diagnosed by being the only thing left after everything else has been ruled out. Thus I wouldn't count on it being ruled out just yet.

Try to be patient and let the rheumatologist figure things out!

I know it's hard to wait, but Lupus is really diagnosed after everything else has been ruled out, and it often depends more on your symptoms (and how they react to medications) than it does to blood work.

You've checked the Diagnosing Lupus link below, right?
