My Auntie had lupus but sadly passed away in her early 20's from it as 25 years ago they didn't seem to know much about it. Since then my other Aunt has been diagnosed along with 3 cousins and my sister. Does this increase my chances of having Lupus? When I read the list of symptoms I have had several of the things but these could also be put down to other things in life. I had an ANA test along with my sister and cousins 8 years ago and all our tests came back negative but now they have been diagnosed over the last few years with positive ANA tests. I went to my doctors but dont feel like I am been taken seriously. My doctor said that another ANA test could come back negative again so if I was that desperate to know he would send me for a genes tests to see if I carry it. Should I have a gene test?
