That’s great news! Though I’m sure it’s frustrating since it doesn’t give you any further clues as to what the problem is. Do you meet any of the lupus criteria? Usually 3-4(depending on what state you are in and insurance standards) is a pretty good indication it could be lupus. Though I have no heard of a hemothorax being caused by lupus, have you had any infectious disease testing?

Previousely I was diagnosed with Fibro.I have few symptoms but not sure they are due to LUPUS.
Current symptoms are : Ribs pain due to pleurisy, Knees pain, redish in the mouth with mild soreness and lot of back pain (from muscles).

Previously when I mentioned to my physician about infections, he said he don't expect infections.
What are the lab tests require to test infectious disease?
