Just a quick note to say hi!
I have had a high ANA, but the doctors would not conclude Lupus because the other tests did not confirm. However, I had the symptoms of SLE Lupus. Often people can have an elevated ANA, but many doctors will disregard it. THe rash on the face is often related to discoid lupus. There are different levels of Lupus and the SLE is of the more serious. I would suggest you check out M.E., Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Many people have never heard of it and it often has many similar symptoms to lupus. I have M.E. and my ANA is elevated. You can read on some of my info. Although I don't have much written at this time. I have video's on Youtube.... It's All About M.E., Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. From there you can find my facebook too.
