    I've tested positivetwice now on the ANA test but the Rheumy I go to says it is Fibro...Has anyone else had that?
    He doesnt want to say that it is Lupus due to me not having the butterfly rash.
    He also said that my immune system is low but not bad.
    My Iron is horrible.
    Can someone help me with understanding this?
    Thanks!! Cindy

    testing positive on an ANA test happens to a lot of people who do not have lupus. I don't think they understand why this is exactly. If you lack a lot of the other lupus symptoms (i.e rashes) thenyou probably don't have it even though you tested positive for the ANA.
