Hi Babe38 -
Don't freak out, just find a lupus-knowledgeable rheumatologist and get a workup from them. One way to do that (if in USA) is to visit www.lupus.org
and use the 'chapter locater' to find the closest group. Then contact the closest group and ask which rheumatologists are working with them -- those drs are the ones who will know the most about
ANA and related illnesses.
ANA 1:160 isn't a huge number, and there are lots of other things to consider before deciding that it is anything like lupus.
Hang in there,
