In brief: Maybe

Lupus is a complex autoimmune disease in which the body is attacking its own tissue.
Lupus is famous for affecting different people in different ways. The effects can be so different from person to person that it does not even look like they have the same diagnosis. ANA is only a screening test that tells us more tests are needed. See a rheumatologist!
