I am a sophmore college student that has been dealing with a variety of symptoms ranging from abdominal pain, nerve pain, muscle weakness, sensitivity to sunlight, as well as a rash. About two weeks ago my ANA came back positve. Since I was having symptoms of Lupus, my doctor ordered a Lupus panel, which suprisingly showed up normal. I have been taking prednisone, which seems to help at times, but does have it's side effects. But i'm unsure as to what the true underlying cause is. I have symptoms of Lupus or perhaps another autoimmune related illness, but had no signs of Lupus in the Lupus panel.
