    hello and welcome.

    please read a few of the other posts.
    they are our personal experiences with lupus.

    there is a good post on understanding how to diagnose lupus.
    basically, there are 11 criterea. you have to have at least 4 of them.

    also lupus is usually only diagnosed after all other possabilities are ruled out.
    i know you have been diagnosed, but doctors still take time to sort out what medications will work properly for you.
