Welcome to our forum The_newgirl. Some things helpful for us to know is if the pain travels from your chest straight to your back, does it hurt when you breathe (pleurisy is common for us), does the pain in your shoulder blades shoot continually across from blade to blade (like mine does)?
There is no specific test for lupus, but your rheumy will evaluate the results along with your symptoms to make his diagnosis. A high anti-ds DNA is often found in lupus and high SSA, SSB are found in Sjogren's syndrome. Please let us know what your rheumy says and I hope you feel better soon. Love, Butterflake
