Yes, you can be diagnosed with a negative ANA. Lupus is diagnosed (by up-to-date Drs) by 4 of 11 symptoms. Follow the link in my signature for more info.

Thank you that link helped Greatly
one thing is odd i have Most of the Symptoms
But the Fever i have but only in Real Bad Flares maby once avery few years i get Total Wipe out
literaly bed ridden Everything Fatigue ,Achs, Swolen Glands,Joiny Pain,Headach,Mouth Ulcers, Fever, Dihareah
this may last for anywhere from a few weeks to 3 Months
Then i go back to Relitive Normal Which is;
Achs,Puffy eyes,HeadAch,Mouth Ulcers,Joint Pain,Fatigue, Basicaly Every thing as above But No Fever and able to move albeit slowly.
i have been diagnosed RA for years but it is Never Typical of RA and i have a new Doctor who is Leaning Toward Lupus but i do not have pos. ANA Ah But i am on Steroids and Metheltrexate and have poor Kidney Function Which in that list can effect it
i guess i'm asking What do you think
