I am an Air Force wife and I've been moving around the country for the last 9 years, changing doctors, etc., so no one has made a diagnosis yet. By process of elimination, I believe I may have Lupus.

We are in the process of moving to the Los Angeles area (Redondo Beach) and I will once again be looking for a doctor. Do any of you have any suggestions? I really need to cut down the amount of time it takes for me to get through the tests, etc., so maybe we can have a diagnosis. We will only be in California for 1 year and if I get a diagnosis, I can take it with me - I won't have to start all over again at square one.

I'm so happy to have found you all online! Thanks.

Amber
