Lupus, maybe: I think you may well be right. You should be under the care of a competent rheumatologist. A Coombs test would be in order to see if you have hemolytic anemia.

Possible but . . . .: Please, have your doctors guide you through proper diagnosis and treatment. Sounds like you already have some tests done, which is fine, but you need a follow up to get the right interpretation and discuss treatment plan with the doctor. Lupus is very complex disease that tends to coexist and/or mimic other autoimmune diseases.
