sounds like you have a doctor who is on to it, and who wants to monitor you and see how things go. While many of us do have both diseases, many also have primary sjogrens (without lupus or RA) so anything is possible.

Sometimes it takes time to come up with the correct dx, and it is better to wait and see rather than rushing in and giving you a dx that may end out being incorrect in the long run.

Your treatment would be the same whichever disease you have (hence the rx for plaquenil, a traditionally lupus drug).

best of luck with it all, personally I think it pays not to rush things in the early stages.
