Introduce myself, I’m new.

Hi all! 
I’m a 47 year old mom to three boys. 10 years ago I went through the ringer with doctors trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Had a bad case of pleurisy. Doctors landed on Sjögren’s syndrome and that was that. 

I finally found a new rheumatologist and she informed me that I have all the markers for lupus. And now here I sit suffering from the same symptoms I did ten years ago. I guess we’d call that a flare up. I had a good run with no pain. But here we are. Deep breaths are painful and a potential sneeze is agonizing yay for allergy season!! Jk.

 Anyhoo, found my way here. Not super positive I have a definite diagnosis of lupus. Pleurisy is my one and only symptom. Unless I can blame my laziness on being tired all the time. but this seems to be the right place for me to be.
