Question Diagnosed with an Auto Immune Disease

I was diagnosed with an Auto Immune disease 2 years ago.
I am still with the consultant, but am very confused. I get Urticaria all over my torso and head. When these are up my joints come under attack and I can barely move. I have put on quite a bit of weight which is unbearable.
Every time I see the Consultant she tells me it takes time to find what causes this problem. I had a bad virus three weeks before this started and she thinks this is what triggered my Auto Immune Disease.
If I get ill with a minor cold or infection my Auto Immune system attacks me with inflammation on all of my joints and Urticaria on my head, torso, and bottom of my feet. I cannot barely move when it is like this.
When I am not seeing the consultant my GP looks after me she is great.
but when she has her vacation the trouble begins. I get pushed from pillar to post. Can anyone help me I feel sometimes that I am going mad. Even my family say well they should have treated it by now and you should be better, And I am not trying, I still carry on at a slower pace and some days are worse then others, but I will not give in.
