Can severe allergies cause a positive ana?

In brief: Highly unlikely,,,

This is mostly due to connective tissue diseases like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, and others.
Allergies aren't known to do this, even severe ones. Having said this, you might have one of these diseases as they're more common in women, so it's good to see your doctor and get tested, or if you know you have a positive ana, discuss it with your doctor and if needed, get more tests.
