Do I have Lupus?

Do I have Lupus?

I have been diagnosed with RA. I am symptomatic for Lupus, but do not test positive. I have extreme dry mouth, eyes, skin etc. My Rheumy wants me to have a lip biopsy to determine if in fact I have Sjogrens. She said Sjogrens and Lupus share many of the same symptoms. I am very afraid of the lip biopsy. Has anyone else had this done. Do you recommend it. I guess the feeling is, if I don't test positive for Sjogrens, then I probably do have Lupus. I am currently on Placquenil and Methotrexate.

Do you have symptoms of Sjogrens? If you don't, I wouldn't do the lip biopsy. That's just me. 😊
