I'm new and I desperately need some advice!!!! I'm at my wits end!

Hi there.....I am Sarah and I am 23 years old. I have been going through some very strange things, and I really hope someone on here can give me some insight. Here are a few symptoms I have been experiencing:

-Swollen ankles (like a 9 month pregnant lady)
-Strange rash that just develops on its own, it sometimes itches and sometimes it doesn't. (looks almost like chicken pox, but without the blisters-have had chicken pox)
-Very frequent hiccups and strange metallic taste
-My left side between the ribs and hip is VERY sensitive to touch
-I can come home from work @ 6 and sleep until time to go to work the next morning
-I have a knot in my lower back where my kidney is

I know I am not crazy....I just hope someone else can tell me if they have experienced this as well. I went to the doctor today and he did blood tests for Lupus and Arthritis, something on my kidneys and liver and a CBC. I won't know anything until next week. He said the rashes could be because of vasculitis, but he said that could be casued by something that won't show up until we get the blood tests back.

I am so fed up with this stuff. me!
