8) Hiya all you people, havent been diagnosed with lupus but I'm seeing a rheumotologist for tamporal arteritis.This explains some of my symptoms but not fatigue,sores in the nose and mouth,dry mouth, photo sensetivity,arthritic joints, funny rashes and all that. these symptoms come and go...good days and bad.. I'm now trying to correlate the severity of my symptoms with the brightness of the day. That makes sense to me!! Anyway finding this site is like having my very own support and advice group at my fingertips. You all sound like very nice people(bet youre not all nice all of the time, that would be scary) I really believe that sufferers are the real experts on their condition rather than the medicos.It's good to be in touch.By the way I'm 60 this year and live in north east England.
