Hi there,

I'm a 27 year old female and for the past few years, I've had some strange symptoms:

-Mild joint pains (asymmetrical--in my left wrist and hand, mostly).
-Occasional mild oral ulcers (on the roof of my mouth)
-Mild solitary rashes (not really on sun-exposed areas)
-Very dry eyes and mouth
-Occasional shortness of breath.
-ANA level 1:80 (homogenous); all else autoimmune tests negative

I don't have fevers, photosensitivity or fatigue. I've been to numerous doctors and they can't really tell me what's going on.

Does it sound like lupus? Any and all insight would be greatly appreciated since I can't seem to get an answer from doctors or doing research.

Much thanks!
