When I was diagnosed with fibro my OD told me he thought I had "a little Lupus". Making light of it so i wouldn't get upset. I had alot of symptoms and the redness over the cheeks and bridge of the nose. I was tested twice once again by my Rheumy, no ANA present. But here I am with the symptoms still 3 years later! My skin is getting more and more sensitive to light, and I suffer with dishydrotic exzema that is painful. I also have horrible headaches. So my querry is can Lupus be present without ANA present? I am just curious.
