In October 09 my Rheumatologist suspected Lupus but hasn't DX me yet. I've had ongoing bouts with pleurisy and pericarditis. Anybody else with this?? I saw a cardiologist last week and he said i have Chronic Pericarditis. If i have Lupus then he says that is the cause. If i don't have Lupus we are back at square one and don't know why i get it every other month. Just curious how common this is with Lupus or without for that matter. Thanks!!!
