Hi Alan, sorry I am late welcoming you to the group. It's really hard to get a DX for auto immune diseases but the blood test is a step in the right direction. However some people will have lupus with a possitive ANA and some people will have Lupus and never have a possitive ANA. So keep pushing and try not to get to frustrated. In the mean time I hope they give you somthing to help you with the symptoms even if they don't have an answer for you for awhile.
take care and let us know how the tests go
