before lupus test results

My daughter has rashes on arms face , back and abdomen that looked like lupus to the doctor. She has had these rashes on and of since teenage. Doctor decided to test for it. Test takes 10days. Since then she has had excruciating pain in the legs that was relieved by IBprofin. But not last night. Then legs and ankles swelled up yesterday. Should we go back to the doctor or wait a another week. She is in college and has to walk around. She doesnt know what to do either?

Re: before lupus test results

Julie, I'm only a patient, but in my mind, swelling should be reported. Minimally, I'd call my dr. if I were in her shoes. Hopefully she'll be able to book another appt. Good luck! Vee
