I got my blood work back they were trying to see why I'm in pain, they were thinking arthritis. My labs for arthritis came back normal but they did have a test ana of course at the time I had no idea what it was for but those results are as follows. Ana screen: borderline. Titer: 1:1280, pattern: homogeneous. I made a follow-up appt with my pcp. But I have to wait 3 weeks to even know what my blood work means. Everything I read talks about lupus. Does anyone have any ideas.

Your titer is high.
Do you meet the 4 out of 11 indicators for lupus? That's what the rheumy goes by to diagnose you. If your present doctor is not a rheumy make sure to get a referral to one.
