Had drug induced lupus now resolved, still get very cold hands & feet etc i noticed today that now my fingertips are wrinkled from cold. Why is this?

My ANA levels are high i took the lupus test it was at a 5 but i still have pains , tingling, numbness in hands, feet, arms, legs. Told me fibromyalga
Question?: I am not sure what you are asking. The ANA is a screening test for lupus but can be seen in numerous other diseases and in people who have no disease. I assume the lupus test you mention is a dna antibody. This test does not have to positive to have lupus. Finally, about 30% of lupus patients also have fibromyalgia.
