:Robin, you should contact a local Lupus Foundation Chapter in your area--usually you can find the number right in the phone book. They are very helpful and can send you lots of info about Lupus. One rheumatologist thought that was what I had because I do hvae an unusually high ANA level. He put me on all kinds of meds, but I really had no symptoms of Lupus--for some people a high ANA is normal, so be cautious and do look for the local Lupus Foundation in your area or a bigger city near you should have the number. If that doesn't work, just call information and ask for the LUPUS FOUNDATION-they can give a phone number. Hope this helps. Paula
