What have I got?

Hi
I've been looking for answers all over the place and am hoping you can help.
My doc has said I have possible Lupus or Fibro as I have symptons which could belong to either. Is fibro an autoimmune disease? My ANA is 1:1280 which suggests autoimmune but that is the only blood test that has come back positive (twice), after having nearly every blood test invented.
I have fatigue, organ pain (kidney and spleen areas), mouth ulcers, aches and pains on and off in neck and right shoulder area, low grade fever, reynauds syndromn, migraines, headaches, miss periods, frequent urination, flushed face (occasional), brain fog and the list goes on.
My doc wont refer me to anyone for at least another 3 months as he wants to retest ANA levels then.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated especially answers to the ANA question.
Thanks.
