Hi all - I'm a grad student in health psych with a low-level autoimmune disorder. I was not diagnosed with lupus as I don't meet all of the criteria. I had a positive ANA test, protein in the urine, joint/muscle problems, and a condition for which I had to have surgery. But not lupus as I lack the butterfly rash and the anti-Sm. They don't know precisely what it is that I have, but basically I have to treat the symptoms as they flare.
