Not much published on this. Not a good way to diagnose lupus. Many better ways to diagnose lupus. Discuss with your team.

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a rheumatologist. Wish you good health!
