Unhappy Petechiae

So, I've had these small red spots - lots of them - in several places on my body for 4 - 6 weeks now. My doc first blew it off as folliculitis or hemangiomas, but I know differently. In fact, they're getting worse (i.e. more of them & redder aka more noticeable).

On top of this, I've had symptoms like:
  1. Easy bruising (i.e. lots of bruises, seem to happen for no reason)
  2. Badly Swollen - sometimes tender - Lymph Nodes for about 3 MONTHS
  3. L Side Pain
  4. SEVERE Exhaustion
  5. Weak (more than normal)
  6. Normal Joint Pain Worse
  7. Normal Memory Problems Worse
  8. Pale Episodes
  9. Nausea
  10. Sometimes Dizzy
  11. ...and so on

I'll tell ya now. I've been dx w/ SLE (lupus), but I wonder if I wasn't mis-dx. I'm wondering if that isn't a possibility right now OR if this is some kind of complication.

Any thoughts?
God Bless,
