Advice from those in the know

I have had a couple of posts on different forums relating to breathing difficulty.

I was recently told that I had inflammed muscles between my ribs (costochondritis) and an inflamed back.
I am also extremely tired. I spoke to a friend who I hadn't talked to in a while and he said my symptoms sounded like his girlfriend who had lupus.

I am going to the doctor for anti-inflammatry medicine on Monday. Is it worth me mentioning this to him? Or what are the other symptoms or tests he can do to rule this out.

Some background I have suffered from anxiety disorder and stress for about 3 years.

Any advice would be great, SA

Well if I was you I would mention the symptoms you are having to the doctor. It lots of blood to be done and X-rays. I was just diagnois with Lupus and Rheumatiod Arthritis Last month. I'm tired all the time i'm in pain right now waiting on my meds to kick in but it will take two more months to see if it's going to work for me. Well good luck on your visit.
