Another welcome! Like Lynnwood said, you're on the right track by seeing a rheumatologist. You have quite a strong genetic link with autoimmune diseases. Your ANA is definitely in a range that will make your doctors "perk up".
Keep a diary of all your symptoms. Take pictures of any rashes you get. Have a detailed family history ready for your rheumy. Most of all, if you don't get the right treatment from this rheumatologist, drop him/her like a stone and move on to a different one. Don't stick it out with a specialist that blows you off!
Keep in touch and ask more questions if you need to!
