Needing more info on labs and clinical symptoms. ANA positive is sensitive for possible autoimmune disease.but not very specific. Every lab on your ENA panel is important esp they are moderate positive and they all mean something different. Lab is never enough for diagnosis esp rheumatic condition. It is important for you to find a rheumatologist for thorough history and physical exam.
