Hello Sheer and welcome,

I agree with Lola that your symptoms definitely need further investigation and you need to see another rheumy. Not many rheumatologists actually specialise in auto-immune diseases but by posting here in the "find a doctor" section you should get some good pointers as to where to go for one of them.

Please don't feel like a hypochondriac, I know we all have (and sometimes still do) at some stage but you know yourself well enough to know that something is definitely going on here and needs looking into.

Make sure that if you get any rashes, you take a photo of them. Often, by the time we see the doc, they have magically disappeared which is most annoying.

Please don't give up and do get all this looked at. If you do have some kind of auto-immune disease going on then you need to try and get treatment started which should make a big difference to your quality of life and also hopefully control the disease better.

hugs to you
