Really Nervous

Hi! I am a 29 year old girl with an odd history. I had a Rheumatoid Nodule removed from my elbow at 10 years of age. Since then I have had some joint pain, lots of fatigue, and general weakness. About 5 years ago I presented with Raynouds Syndrome. They checked my ANA's a month ago and they are very high. They suggest I have lupus, RA, Sjogrens or possibly Scleraderma. I have not been to the Rheumatologist yet, I go in three weeks. My mom presented with severe RA two years ago and is on Enbrel. I am very nervous and really just looking for a little peace of mind. Does anybody out there have any to offer? Or possibly any insight into all this? Feeling frightened and overwhelmed.
