Hi,

I'm in the same boat. After two years literally in bed, I was finally admitted to the hospital where it took them 3 weeks to decide i MIGHT have Lupus. Another 2 month wait to see a rheumatologist who said he thought it was Lupus symptoms induced by hydralazine. So he took me off the hydralazine and said symptoms should go away in about 6 months. But that didn't happen and I'm still waiting for someone to say what it is. My nephrologist is the closest to committing, saying he thinks Lupus has been attacking my kidneys. Everyone else just shrugs and passes the buck. Not a comforting feeling. I'm looking for a rheumatologist in the area who handle Lupus regularly.

I hope you get your answer soon!
