Dear Vicki, The ANA can take time to show positive. Also , although SLE is more common in certain races, it is certainly not that rare in white women. (My Daughter and myself for example)
I can appreciate how terrible you feel, for a lot of us diagnosis was hard and many Docs. and even some Consultants are pretty ignorant about Lupus.
A diastolic blood pressure of 106 is high and I don't feel pain would fully explain it.

I am no expert but I can say you need a good Consultant and some help with medications even if they take a while arriving at a diagnosis. (Sometimes time is needed) Remember if it is Lupus it will affect things like life and health insurance, so maybe sort them out now if you can.

Best Wishes,
and stay strong.
