Post Update! I have a rheumatologist appointment tomorrow! Help! What will happen?

During this initial appointment? I bet i will be diagnosed with the initial stages of Lupus, but we shall see. I have never been to this kind of doctor, and am wondering what she will do, and how long an initial appointment takes. Wish me luck and i thank graciously the people who answered my post recently for their time and kindness. Your posts calmed me down so much and i have been able to eat and even sleep and relax somewhat, although i am still scared, but i am handling it so much better! Thanks to anyone who will answer my post tonight as my appointment is tomorrow at 9am! love, ann

Ooops i'm too late! You are probably at the Dr as i type this! My first appointment a year ago this month, when I was diagnosed ( a neurologist first done my initial ANA test then sent me to a Lupus Specialist at the Kirkland Clinic which is part of UAB hospital in Birmingham Alabama). On my first visit they did a through exam....much like a nerologist does, checked all my lymph nodes, listened to heart, looked in eyes, mouth, nose, listened to breathing, asked a zillion questions, checked joints,felt of liver, etc.....did blood work, checked urine.....I think that was basically what they did....my second appointment is when they did the official diagnosis. Let us know how it goes!
