Today I got the result of my ANA test and it was positive. In two weeks I am going to a specialist. Having a positive test does that mean I have lupus? I am thinking that is a posibility -if you think not, please let me know. I have acepted that I have some kind of issue with my bones and muscles. My face is red in the butterfly shape when I come inside from the sun. My memory is off, it takes me a few minutes before I can answer someone or on a conversation. Fluid in hands and feet. I think thoses are most of my symptoms. Any advice you can give me would be great. I am 29, work in a day care and working on a master's in special education.
