I am 18 years old, female, and was just diagnosed with Raynaud's Syndrome a few days ago (though I've had it for years). My rheumatologist put in for more bloodwork to test for lupus (anti-dna, and complement levels, and a CBC). I had a positive ANA test back in July that prompted my pediatrician to refer me to a specialist.
My symptoms were joint pain, Raynaud's, mouth sores (8 canker sores last year including one on my tongue), and chest pain with deep breathing. I do not have the malar rash and while I am fatigued, it's not super severe. The mouth sores and chest pain I've had since I was little, but they are increasing in frequency and severity. The joint pain is mostly in my fingers and knees, usually on one side or the other but never at the same time.
But, I just got my results back, and haven't heard from my doctor yet, but they're all normal. All within the CBC are within the normal range. My C3 was an 83 and my C4 was a 21. My dsdna said "<1:10" and "not applicable"--not sure what this means, as it had no reference range for me.
So...what does this mean? If my lab is normal, then why do I have these symptoms? I'm not making it up. I feel like that's what he'll try to say. He brushed off my chest pain when it didn't hurt too much when he was putting pressure on where the pain usually is, not x-rays or CT scans.
Is it possible to still have lupus with perfectly normal lab work?
If not...what do I have?
Edit: Forgot to add. RE: mouth sores: I have already tested negative for Celiac disease, and just tested negative for herpes simplex virus. I know these sores can be caused by stress, but 8 a year? I'm not that stressed.
