Brilliant, I have looked at St Thomas (and their criteria) that was very helpful.
The most intense symptom I have been having is with the swollen knees, so I was looking for an all round rheumotologist, (no kidney damage and GP's ANA test seems fine) but interestingly I have several symptoms on the St Thomas Criteria as well! So surprising, especially the allergy to Septrin & sulphonomides…..
If I went to see a Lupus specialist would they also be testing me for other auto immune diseases? Or should I see just a general Rheum? Do you recommend a particular person at St Thomas? It's all a bit confusing!
I would really like to read your link between hypermobility and autoimmune diseases... but I can't find it. Can you forward an http address on?
Thank you so much, I really appreciate it,
