I've had these weird symptoms since like October of last year right after I turned 15...
My symptoms are:
*Joint pain
*Joint swelling
*Joint inflammation
*Joint popping
*Headaches
*Extreme fatigue
*Feet and hands stay cold like all the time
*Feet and legs tuen purple when really cold
*Red rashish spot on my cheek
*Bumps on fingers and hands
*Get dizzy sometimes
*Forgetful sometimes
*Trouble concentrating
*Sight gets blurry sometimes
*Get mad easily
*Feel weak all the time
*Stomach pain
*Pain when breathing deeply sometimes

Does this sound like Lupus? I haven't been to the doctor about it yet because I'm not sure what it is..

I haven't been to the doctor about it yet because I'm not sure what it is.. I'd suggest you see a dermatologist when you have the rash, and if they are good they'll order the correct lab work. As you have probably seen from the rest of the posts here, it's difficult to diagnose. I am in the middle of being diagnosed, I have many of the symptoms you have and Lupus is the only disorder that seems to make sense to me. There are many resources of information on the web, good luck - hope you find out soon!
