Question Lupus Symptoms

Can anyone shed some light on Lupus symptoms. I have recently had a ANA blood test with a result of 640 and then again 320 with low blood complements.

I'm extremely fatigued with shortness of breath. Outside of those symptoms, my rheumotologist is not diagnosing Lupus due to lack of symptoms. I had a CT scan and my lungs are clear/fine.

Can anyone help me out? Do I need a second opinion?

Help!!

Hi there. Lupus presents many ways with many challenges. It can affect everyone differently! The best book is The Lupus Book by Dr. Wallace. A good investment. don't let it scare you though, much of what he talks about may never happen to you! A high ANA can mean differnt things I think. It tends to go higher the older we get. Keep on your doctor to help you feel better regardless of a diagnosis! Good luck!
