I hope someone might ease my frustration. I currently present with almost every hallmark symptom of lupus... HOWEVER, my family doc will not test because what I see as the butterfly rash, he says can't be because it doesn't extend all the way across my cheeks. But the bridge of my nose always looks sunburned. To make matters worse, he's convinced that without that visible marker, it "most likely" isn't lupus therefore doesn't warrant testing!!! I know that sounds ludicrous, but it's true. Please, any info is so appreciated! ♥
