It sounds like your joints are swollen badly are you on any medication yet to help with the Lupus and swelling?? refering the bruising it's possible you may have anemia as that makes you bruise but because the bloods fluctuate so much with Lupus pin pointing condition's with Lupus itself can be so hard, it took 6mths for my anemia reading to show but you have mentioned bruising to the eyes i used to have that and i'm going back a good 6yrs and apprentley it's blood vessels bursting at the back of the eyes and it comes forward into bruising [you mays well say you've done 10 rounds how it can make you look] the itching and burning from your eyes is the Lupus have they done a paper strip test yet to see how bad your eyes are out of 10.
Nancy let the doctor's look at you like you've come off cloud 9 but mate your the one suffering and push at them because you need more tests and medication to help you. Fight it mate.
