Re: is it possible i have lupus? help please!!!

Hi. My first rheumatologist was a transcendent disaster. I then saw a metro teaching hospital rheumatologist who ran circles around all my previous drs. There are fine doctors out there, we just have to find them.

My shins were a chronic sore spot (bad pun) from age 13 to the point I was diagnosed decades later. Like you said, mere walking could cause agony. I think all you can do when that happens is to kick back.

For years, I kept in file a list of doctors from an annual magazine feature. Had I suspected lupus, I'd have ramped up much sooner. My advice is, start such a file, see how it goes 3 weeks from now, and then ramp up if you have to. Hang in there. Wishing you better days ahead, and soon. Bye, Vee
