Anti-SSB positive without Anti-SSA?
 
I am desperate for an answer to this question. I have found minimal information on SSB without SSA positive results. Everything I have read indicates that to have Sjogren's or another auto immune disorder, you must be SSA positive and SSB, or only SSA. Can someone please tell me if I should be concerned that I have a false positive result? Apparently, SSB must be accompanied by SSA.

My thoughts and prayers go out to each of you as you struggle for answers and cope with these illnesses.

Thank you
