Hi Julie.
I would definately advice you on seeing a good rheumatologist, or try to see a rheumy with a interest in Lupus,

Lupus can cause allsorts of problems ranging from memory loss, to pains and swellings in joints, to the rashes, pleurisy, chest pain etc, etc,

You definately need further testing, including a full Lupus screen, along with other auto-immune antibody testing.

Hope this has helped.
Good Luck
Nicola
