I am bumping this thread because it seems that are so many new folks here that think they have lupus. 

Lupus is not an easy diagnosis! It can take a VERY long time to get a diagnosis and the list above is proof that symptoms can point to many things. Lupus is diagnosed by a combination of symptoms and labs.

I'd like to add these links to the Johns Hopkins Lupus Center as well:

https://www.hopkinslupus.org/lupus-info/diagnosing-lupus/

I wish you all well.

And those are just the ones they have named.

I think it's got to be one of the most complex areas of medicine.
