No, that's not very high. But experience from all our members has proven that how you feel is not really related to the ANA numbers.
Lupus is not easy to diagnose, and a positive ANA can mean any of several auto-immune diseases, it is NOT a test specific to lupus. Don't get ahead of the horse, let the drs due the diagnosing. I know it's tempting to read up on everything having to to with ANA, but it's better to let the drs use their experience. We've found that when you tell the dr what you think it is, they then are predisposed to look for that thing and will sometimes skip over looking for something it may eventually turn out to be!
While your rheumy may choose to do further diagnostics, most will put you on some initial medications to ease your symptoms asap.
In the meantime, ibuprofen can help a great deal with joint inflammation. Hope you feel better soon.
