My late mother had lupus. I have OA, Raynaurds, Asthma, Migraines, High Blood Pressure. When the doctor does the lab tests sometimes they come back negative and on at least one occasion they came back positive for lupus. Now one of my daughters has been diagnosied with lupus. How can I be sure that I don't have it?

  • If they came back positive on one occasion then I would assume you do have Lupus.
