Testing: Given your history of joint pain, hypertension, fatigue and skin rash, I would also suggest that you have a urinalysis and renal function testing. The symptoms that you are describing may be caused by a number of different conditions. Your physicians are trying to diagnose and rule out some causes. Once the testing is completed, I would suggest scheduling an appointment to review all the results.
