Hi.[br>I for the past 7 weeks have been feeling fatigued, muscle aches, low grade temp, low abdominal pain, low back pain, I've had what I believe it's been Raynaud's approx. 4 or 5 times in the past 2 years. It all started with flu like symptoms. When I finally went to the Dr. they did blood work and my ANA came back positive. Tomorrow I go to the rheumatologist. Does this sound like Lupus? my primary told me he can't tell me with 100% certainty because another test they did came back negative. Please help.

Thank youMaria

Maria...I wish I could offer you some help in this area, but I have only dealt with my own symptoms and diagnosis for a short period of time & still learning, I pray that you feel better soon, that you get a more firm diagnosis amd someone with more knowledge & experience responds to your post soon.
