Hi @tarahbeth, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Mayo Clinic would be an excellent choice to get a diagnosis if possible. If you would like get a second opinion from Mayo Clinic, you can find the contact information for the Minnesota, Arizona and Florida campuses here http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63.

Is is possible to get a referral from your doctor? Even if you are not able to get a referral from your doctor you can call for yourself. There are some good tips on seeing a new specialist or doctor by @roch here:

Keep being an advocate for your health, ask questions and learn as much as you can about your health conditions. If it's serious to you, I would think a doctor would be concerned or at least have a good explanation that you can understand. Are you able to share a little more about your symptoms?

Thank you so much for the great advice and information. I have alopecia, scaly rashes like eczema, fatigue, deep bone/muscle ache, burning eyes, low white count, high ana, at times my c3 or4 is low, lately I've had a lot of stomach pain/ bloating, lately I've also had trouble holding on to anything,
Like really clumsy and at times very easy bruising. The bruising has gotten a lot better since I've been on plaquenil though.
