Hi Kathy!

I'm a bit surprised the rheumy did not diagnose you with lupus at this appointment, as positive anti-Sm and anti-dsDNA results as very specific for lupus. Some doctors are conservative (mine included), but withholding treatment in light of your test results seems out of line to me.

Would it be possible for you to get a second opinion?
