Have been being tested for about 8 months, first DNA came back indeterminent (7), second a month later was (9), now, a while later, it moved into the positive range of 18.
ANA was negative in April and has not been retested.
Symptoms, ailments:
Shortness of breath (it's getting worse-can ride a bike 50 miles, flat paths, but can't walk a mile without getting winded, or upstairs)
tingling and numbness in foot
arthritis in thumbs, hips
chest pain upon deep breathing and or sneezing (lasted about a month)
Positive Double Stranded DNA
What is your take (anyone) on this?  Have appointment with Rheumatologist for first time on Wed this week. 
Did I mention the fatigue?
Thanks for your help.

OOPPS, forgot to mention the rash--neck and chest, it itches when I get overly warm... that comes and goes, but it's been acting up for the last 5 weeks now.

And, bruising, I bruise incredible easily...Arnica usually works wonders for that.

If I remember more, I'll put it in here.
