I got blood work done by rheumatologist as i have all the symptoms of lupus. Negative ana and negative anti bodies. But i have a low C3 and Almost below average C4. Also blood in urine. I have had blood in urine for a while. I see a urologist. Kidneys and everything was looked at. All normal. But i still have blood in urine. Doctor blew off the low C3 and blood in urine. I get sick all the time. I also take no medication other than multi vitamins and 1 keflex after sex to prevent uti's (which i startes that after i already had blood in my urine)
My question is should i seek out another rheumatologist for a second opinion?
I am concerend about the low C3 abd boarder C4 and blood in my urine all the time.
All other lab work was somewhat normal. Boarder high of MCHC
