    Hello Sacha :lol:
    Welcome to our forum. I know the feeling of being sick and tired of being sick and tired!!!! That is kinda our "Mantra".
    Yes, your symptoms do sound like LUPUS. The testing and diagnosis of the disease takes quite a while. Perhpas your doctor can start you on some of the treatments while you are being tested, especially if he thinks that it may indeed be LUPUS.
    Hang in there....we are here to support you, to listen to you and to help you with information!!!
