I'm sorry you're experiencing such a frustrating time getting diagnosis and treatment. I know that's a common experience. Diagnosis is sometimes the most difficult aspect of the disease and can take a long time. You DO need a specialist, sounds like, to help you get a proper diagnosis and treatment. Lupus and fibromyalgia can look like so many other things. General practitioners are often not comfortable making a diagnosis or prescribing meds that are used to treat lupus (mine wasn't, but he had presence of mind enought to make a referral to a rheumatologist.) You'll have to be an aggressive patient, I think, to get the help you need. There are several Canadians who post on this forum frequently, and they may have some good ideas on how to best get the care you need in the Canadian medical system. If you do indeed have lupus and fibromyalgia, then you really need someone who can help you treat those illnesses soon. Lupus can have serious implications if left untreated. I hope you find the right doctor! Please check back here often. There are so many knowledgeable people who post here. I know you'll find some good advice, and lots of support. Be well, Bianca.
