In brief: ANA
Recommend discussing symptoms with your primary care doctor. He/she may choose do testing for ana.
If positive, you should see a rheumatologist for further evaluation. Autoimmune diseases can run in families. Making a diagnosis of lupus can be complicated and thus best made by a rheumatologist.
