The fact you had a positive Smith in past IS significant, as that is one of the few specific tests for lupus, along with dsDNA.

... nysue, I'm just a patient but I think your labs and symptoms could be suggestive of lupus, but only depending on your lab levels.

... Retired, I understand being upended by the word "lupus". I was, too. I headed to the library & borrowed hardcovers with greater detail that you can find online.
