Has anyone ever thrown false positives for either RA or Lupis?  A couple times a year I will have a positive RA or Lupis blood test.  I'm 95% positive that it is just because the diseases are "similiar", but still, it kind of concerns me.  I have no reason to actually think that I have either.  Vote!! it will be some good data!
