hi Kristin, and welcome
yes it is possible to have an extremely high ana and not have an auto immune disease.
the opposite is also possible, to have the disease and not have it show on the ana test.
ana stands for anti nuclear antibody.
any form of virus or infection can and often do inflate the ana score.
in saying that, an auto immune disorder does also sound realistic, given the full list of symptoms.
but we are not doctors, and can not diagnose .... so please go to your rheumatologist appointment.
sorry there is no clear set of guidelines to use .... auto immune means it reacts without assistance ....
so all the normal rules are out the door.
please keep us informed as to your diagnosis and possible treatment.
