    Default Newly dx'ed and scared

    Hello all-
    I am here b/c it seems I might have SLE. I went to see a hematologist b/c of a positive APA panel. He then ran an ANA panel and these were my results:

    ANA titer 1:160
    Speckled and homogenous pattern
    Smith antibody 188 (>120=positive)

    Everything else was in normal range. Does this mean I definintely have SLE?
    I also have Hashimotos--could that be what's causing these results?
    I've read through the symptoms and I really don't have anything.

    I can't get in to the rheumatologist until next week and am going crazy. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks-
    Lillibelle
