Is there anyone here that experienced shingles and received a lupus diagnosis or at least lupus symptoms or testing around the same time?

    I might have had shingles but we're not sure and my Lupus was diagnosed much later

    I was in the hospital with a mystery disease and they never figured out way it was. I was severely ill for over a month and along with many other symptoms was a blister rash all over my chest similar to shingles. Shingles (and related) tests came back negative but the rash responsed to aclovir infusion. Shortly after, I’m in the process of being diagnosed with lupus.
