My knee and ankle occasionally feel weak though no true weakness or pain. ANA + (no utter listed) RF 18.4. SED RATE norm and rnp, Smith, SSA, SSB negative. Stress and anxiety last 6 months causing?

False positives: Many people have positive ANA or RF and still don't have lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. These are nonspecific tests, and need to be combined with clinical findings that suggest the disease. Psychological distress can definitely cause musculoskeletal discomfort.
