Make diagnosis: Those are a lot of things and they may or may not all be connected. Certainly with an elevated sed rate and a positiveana test are concerning for an autoimmune condition, such as lupus, would be a concern. I would encourage you to continue work up with a rheumatologist and ultimately the single or multiple diagnosis made will aid in treatment and prognosis discussions. Thank you.
