labs all negative when previously positive

I recently had to change Rheumy's and had a first appointment and many labs and xrays done. My new Dr. did get records from my previous Rheumy so she had something to go on. My new tests revealed no positives for the labs she ran other than anemia. This confuses me since I was dx'd over 20yrs. ago and had many positive ana's among other labs. This has never happened before what's going on? Any info appreciated.
