I was about
to post the same thing as Joy when I saw her reply and she said just exactly what I had in mind!!
The nurse should not have said anything, lupus is not diagnosable from blood tests alone. If she's guessing based on ANA - well, you can have positive ANA from taking some meds!!! You need to have 4 of the 11 symptoms you find by following the 'Diagnosing Lupus' link below.
Try not to worry, nothing drastic will happen in the next 2 weeks and you will only stress yourself out and miss what is going on right now.
Read up by following the link below. The first is more disease-related, the second has a little more information about
various tests, ANA patterns, etc.
Take care of yourself - remember, no worries!
