It is not that weird. Having ANA negative Lupus happens often as well as having Lupus with negative lab results (I believe that there is a discussion elsewhere in these forums about that exact circumstance). As you and your doctor have recognized, you do have the classic symptoms of Lupus.
I, myself, am considered to have "Mild Lupus" which, my doctors have explained, means that I have many of the symptoms without the lab results and without having to take a lot of medication. So, I suppose that you and I are in the same boat :lol:
Are you taking Plaquenil as your hydroxychloriquine? If so, did your doctor explain that it could take weeks to months before you really see the effects of Plaquenil, but that it is one of the standard treatments because of its effectiveness?
You can always come to this site for information and answers, there will always be someone here to help you. Again..welcome!
