Rec'd positive ANA but no real symptoms....is this lupus
Hi. My name is Margie and I am 34. I went to the dr. last week as I broke out in hives for the first time in my life. My dr. did blood work and my ANA came back positive with a titer of 1:320. I got online and read as much as I can and now I am fearful that I have lupus. He said my RA factor came back negative and the sedimintation also was normal. So, he said not to get further tests until I develop symptoms but I think I should so I know what is going on. I have a 9 month old son and want to have more children. I am freaking out here. I know lupus can be really bad. Can someone tell me its going to be okay? Isn't my ratio pretty high for something not to be going on? Any advice, words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated. I plan to see a rheumatologist as soon as I can get in. Thanks for listening. I am so bummed.
