I am so happy you found us. I see many of our members have already given you great advice. I had a positive ANA when I was in my early thirties and, then, I wasn't officially diagnosed until I was 43! And, when I was diagnosed, I had a negative ANA.
Hippi is correct, everyone reacts differently to lupus. Some have it worse than others. I know that I have made a lot of changes since I was diagnosed and it was depressing at first. Now, three years later, I am doing better and I have found other projects and activities that I enjoy.
You have found the right site for your questions. Please stop by often! My thoughts and prayers are with you!
Lupus and RA and LOTS of Medications!
