In brief: See a doc

A 1:80 Ana is barely abnormal but seeing a rheumatologist for an evaluation would be a good idea - the eval would include a history and examination and possibly some more detailed blood testing to see if anything important is going on.

In brief: Yes

Yes, your situation sounds very much like it could be systemic lupus.
Avoid foods with Neu5GC in them (red meat, dairy products) and see a rheumatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
