Welcome to the site. There are a lot of really good and knowledgeable folks that come here and there are a lot of us with Lupus. I have had Lupus for most of my life. I hope that you can get into see a Rheumatologist and I hope the Opthamologist can help aide in getting you to a Rheumatologist. Do you know what your ANA Titer was? I mean the pattern and count? I am wondering if you may also have Sjogrens with it. A lot of the symptoms that you have are also seen in Sjogrens. I hope that I have helped in some way. God Bless.
