I had posted on the Autoimmune Disorders board , and I was told I might want check out this board, as some of my symptoms match the Lupus criteria. I'm having a lot of immune issues, and I'm just wondering where to go from here. Would I see my pcp and ask for more testing? Or see a specialist?

It's been a long time since I've felt well. I've always had frequent infections, but now I've hit an all-time low. It's usually 3-4 a year. Since I had my son last October, I've been sick every 3-4 weeks - colds, sinus infections, tonsilitis, pink eye (3x), vaginal infections, etc. I had my tonsils taken out in September due to recurring tonisilitis, but I'm still getting sick every month and I'm still have chronic throat pain. Almost 3 months after my surgery, and I'm still on painkillers.

A few things of note:
I was diagnosed with GERD, gastritis and then IBS about 11 years ago. They didn't do a colonscopy or anything like that. My gastroenterologist just gave me some meds, and said if they work, then thats what I have. I went several years with no problems at all, and it started flaring up (severely) several months ago.

I was diagnosed with rosacea about the same time. Once again, it went away for several years and flared up several months ago.

Also have a Raynaud's Phen. diagnosis.

I've been having frequent vaginal infections - probably due to the monthly antibiotics. I was diagnosed with Genital HSV1 about 10 years ago, and only ever had the initial outbreak. I may be having (all of a sudden) a back-to-back infection. Or it may be a yeast infection or a rash. I don't even know anymore. It's little red bumps that keep appearing and disappearing after a day or so. Nystatin/Triamcinolone seems to help.

Other symptoms of note:
joint pain
facial flushing
frequent swollen lymph nodes
red/itchy/swollen eyes (had pink eye 3x this year, but I still have these problems with my eyes)
chronic throat pain
