Further testing is required to really determine lupus from similar symptoms.

In brief: It does indeed

Whether you meet the criteria for lupus or not, this sounds suspicious.
Tube tests like dsdna are often done wrong and i would let a rheumatologist's judgement have sway here when it comes to a treatment decision.
