Why do symptoms often show up yrs before labs (specific antinuclear antibodies, etc) in a diagnosis of lupus? I'm near diagnosis with only high +ana. What causes the sx?

Lupus is a mystery. Lupus is a famous master of masquerade--it can mimmic many disease states. Lupus symptoms may be present much earlier than when it can be diagnosed, thus lab measurement only provide a guide. This only means the lab has its limitation and medical science has only gotten this far. Don't rely on the lab, but rather rely on your bopdy--maybe something else is going on. Consult your doc.
