    Default Dr. suspects Lupus, looking for answers

    Hi all! I've been quite the medical train wreck over the last ten years or so, and my GP suspects lupus. While I'll hear the results of preliminary bloodwork tomorrow, I don't get to see a rheumatologist until the 18th of December I'm 28 and living in MA; happily married and just hoping to connect with some people for support and maybe some answers as to what's going on.

    I'm in the SAME boat!! I'm 24 almost 25 and it's FRUSTRATING not to know what's going on with your own body!!!
    Sucks that rheumatologists are booked out so far, huh? I finally got in on Nov. 28th and I am also nervously awaiting blood test results. Hang in there!! I know it's tough because a lot of people don't understand, especially when you don't look sick on the outside but on the inside it's like you said, "a train wreck". The good news s that the 18th will be here before you even know it an you will finally get to the bottom of what's going on and start moving forward
