Lupus confusion

Im so very confused also as ive got a negative ANA but consistently high positive anti DSDNA and positive chromatin both specific to SLE. My family doc said it was probably lupus but when i went to Rheumy blood showed the same and i have quite a few of the symptoms hiwever because I have inflamation in my body (had xray, ultrasound and bone
scan) she says I have rheumatoid arthritis not lupus cause peopke with lupus dont have inflamation. I thought they did? However my rheumatoid factor in my blood work was normal. Ugh confused. My kidney function was normal but ive had trace blood in urine for about 18 months. Any insight? Should I see someone else. She started me on plaqunil 400 mg a day.
