welcome to you. yes, you are invited to share with us even without a diagnosis. there are many here that have not gotten a diagnosis, but symptoms and tests certainly indicate lupus. i am not familiar with what a NP program is. however, you really need to see a rheumatologist if possible. they will be able to run several tests that will help with the diagnosis process. also, you should keep a diary of the different symptoms that you experience. diagnosis of lupus requires that you meet 4 of the 11 criteria. these criteria are explained in the "sticky" portion of this forum.
i hope you will be able to see a rheumy, and please call of us for any questions that you might have.
