Welcome to the forum. This is a nice forum with some really knowledgeable people. Marycain, Stjames, Saysusie are all real knowlegeable and one of them will be on shortly. I am 47 and have SLE which I have had almost all my life. You don't always have to have a positive ANA to have Lupus. Mine is pos, but it wasn't pos for years. I believe they go more by symptoms then just the ANA itself. It sounds like you have a lot of different things going on. Have you seen a Rheumatologist? Well I just want to welcome you to the forum.
