Joint pain/swelling, chest pain, intense fatigue, unexplained fever, hair loss, raynauds syndrome, red rash on face, sensitivity to sunlight, leg swelling & swollen glands can all be symptoms of lupus. You should go to your gp who will possibly order urine & blood tests then refer you to a rheumatologist for further testing & assessment.

First if you see that you have any of these symptoms, extreme fatigue , depression, jangled nerves, unexplained pain in joints, etc go to your doctor, he will send you to a rheumatologist and I will do the necessary tests to diagnose it.

You should consult the doctor. Don't autodiagnostiques and much less get ahead of the facts. Please see your doctor.

There is No single test to diagnose lupus.
The doctor can make a diagnosis by viewing the medical history, a complete exam and blood tests, if necessary, skin biopsy and kidney biopsy.
