lupus?

I am having trouble finding a diagnosis. I am always tired, my body aches and sometime hurts just to touch and I find it hard to concentrate. Just recently I went to the hospital due to severe muscle twitches, blotchy skin (just my chest area) and dizziness. During this episode, my TSH level was 7.89. I went to see an endocrinologist two days later and that level returned to a normal 1.1; therefore, hypothyroidism was dismissed. I get random chest pains and a rapid heart rate. I'm just wondering if this could possibly be lupus because it seems like every part of my body is affected, and when I tell a doctor all of my symptoms they seem to overwhelmed to even want to deal with me. I am going to see another endocrinologist next week so maybe that will help, or lead me in the right direction.
