Any joint pain?: Positive ANA and elevated sed rate. If you have joint pains it would be advisable to follow up with a rheumatologist. You have some kind of inflammatory process going on. Both test are very nonspecific and further work-up is needed.

Abnormal labs: These mean nothing without a full history and physical examination by a competent caring physician. Go see one soon.
