Re: what should i tell my doctor to test for lupus
You should definately be tested for everything that you have symptoms for. Fibromyalgia, lupus, other autoimmune diseases, etc... Write down a list of your symptoms, keep a log of your pains *day, time, etc...*, when you feel best and worst, what helps the pain, what makes it worse, even things that you feel is unimportant like nausea, dry/watery eyes, cough, etc... Take the list and log to your doctor. Being specific to all your symptoms will help the doctor decide which disorders should be eliminated or evaluated. Good luck.
