Postivie ANA titer, nucleolar patter, lupus symptoms

I am new to this and need some help. I was tested this week for possible Lupus due to Lupus symptoms (joint pain in hands, protein in urine, extreme fatigue, mass hair loss). My test came back 1:80 (reference range was 1:40-1:80 for low antibody level) with a nucleolar pattern. Natropath recommended that I go to a rhumetologist and suggested possible scleroderma or polymyosistis. I am really suprised about this because I do not have any of the symptoms of what she suggested. My symptoms are more in line with Lupus. I have other autoimmune diseases and health issues (hashimotos, Addisons and fibromyalgia) which may account for some of the Lupus symptoms. Would love input on what you think might be happening here.
