I'm hypothyroid(since 2006) and Fibromyalgia (since 2009) patient.
In my latest blood tests ANA came +VE.Im scaring with these results.I have ribs pain started(back left) in June during my India visit, ribs pain triggers when breathing,yawning and burping.
Primary care ordered X-ray on 07/16 and it came normal.In 3rd visit Primary care ordered bone scan which gave some clue about pleural effusion, so I visited Pulmonologist.
Pulmonologist ordered several ANA tests and CT-Chest.
Here are my CT and ANA results
CT reports says "As per regular nodules identified within the superior segment left lower lobe measuring together an area of 2.4x2.2 cm.Possibly post infectious"
1.ANA SCR, IFA, W/REFL TITER/PATTERN/SJOGREN'S PANEL 1

ANA was -VE in last November.Pulmonologist mentioned in latest results ANA is at border line.
Is this possible to have ANA +VE in infections? or due to Fibromyalgia? or do i have LUPUS?
help me, please!
