Glad you found our forum! Lots of us with lupus have symptoms similar to those you are describing. However, they can also all be attributed to other things. Try not to worry too much and let the drs do more tests and decide what's really up.
The best thing you can do is make notes of all these symptoms for the drs, including when they occurred, and take pictures of any rashes etc in case they disappear at appointment time. Check the links in my signature for lists of symptoms and tests used in diagnosis.
Hope to see you again soon,
