Re: is it possible i have lupus? help please!!!

Mecswim, I remembered after I posted having read about "rheumatoid nodules". You could also visit the Arthritis board, where you'd find more about RA & its diagostic criteria. I believe in RA, ANA is positive way less often than in lupus, also that RF doesn't have to be positive.

I think any rheumatologist worth his salt would start from scratch with you, but I thought above might be useful reading, too. Bye, Vee
