...does this sound like lupus?

unfortunatelly lupus cannot be diagnosed just from your list of symptoms.
doctors run lots of tests.
these tests are to rule out oother possabilities.
without ruling things out........ it is impossible to be sure.

yes your list of symptoms sound like lupus.......
but there is 63 auto immune disorders,
and there symptoms overlap a lot.

i suggest seeking out a rhuematologist.
they are the experts in this type of field.

please keep in contact with us,
we are here to help.
but we cannot diagnose.
