Can there be a link between high levels of anti-nuclear antibodies and high chemical sensitivity?

In brief: High ANA

Anti-nuclear antibodies can be elevated in many conditions and represent a type of autoimmunity or immune reaction to self.
They are associated with several disease conditions and many unusual symptoms. I am not sure what type of "chemical sensitivity" you are are referring to but it is doubtful that there is any association.
