Positive ANA 1:2560 Nucleolar Pattern

Last week my ANA test came back positive.  It seems really high @ 1:2560 Nucleolar Pattern (6 months ago positive as well @ 1:320 - Dr ignored at the time because of Graves & Celiac).  My GP is trying to get me in to see someone in internal medicine now (which will probably take 2-4 months and the waiting list for a  Rheumatologist will take about 1 year which is really upsetting).  Over the past year, after the birth of my second son, I have dealth with a relapse of Graves disease (which is now in remission) and a diagnosis of Celiac disease (ttg positive twice (33 - 37), biopsy neg - Gastro. still recommended gluten free diet which I now follow).  I am suffering from extreme fatigue, right shoulder pain arm weakness, numbness, fingers feel swollen-tight (no noticable scarring etc) brain fogginess, dry eyes, right leg pain weakness....and the combination is making me feel darn depressed.  I have two beautiful boys and have always considered myself a super mom :) (don't we all ;)  these days I wonder how my husband puts up with me as I feel like a shadow of my old self and wonder if that old self ever existed.  I am really scared... I hope someone can offer some advice.  Our health care is in a really bad state these days and I fear that I will never get the help I  need.  If I had not checked of the ana test on my bloodwork slip when my endo. had  done up the slip I would not be here now.  He told me I was fine and probably just depressed because i was finding it hard adjusting to a gluten free diet (My mom has had Celiac for 15 years....I probably know more about the diet than him)  I am sorry for going on....guess I have been holding this in for too long.  Thank you in advance for those of you who may be able to offer some advice.  God Bless
