hi ... gone cray ... it is not just in your head but probably at some point works its way around your body ... it is called an invisible illness.
FM / SLE ... somethings going on!
sadly, a bad doctor story is one you read often ... but see encouragement to continue and seek new medical counsel when necessary, often a blessing. if choice is an option then go for it! i would even drive to the next town if i run out of good rheumies in my area
it is said that ANA results vary with lupus activity, if my understanding is correct your results are *low* ??? altho not only criteria used in dx
rather seek a rheumies dx. and get onto a treatment plan ... sending strength & hugs and reminding you that you are not alone on this journey!
ps: i am 33 going on 63 (i get teased that i sound older than my mum-in-law)
