Edie, I'm so sorry that you're feeling absolutely horrible. Make sure your blood tests include ANA and dsDNA--they test for lupus. And still go see a rheumy.
I've been having joint pain for the past couples months but my ANA and dsDNA came back normal. But my PCP is still suggesting that I go to a rheumy.
Keep us updated!
