Likely no need,,,: This is apparently a very positive result that, coupled with her symptoms, is indicative of some joint, or connective tissue disease. More tests are needed to be sure of which disease it may be, and a follow-up visit with your Dr. or a specialist, like a Rheumatologist would be the next likely step. Best of luck.
