I just started on Plaquenil on Thursday after months and months of putting it off. I have a positive ANA and SSA but no definite symptoms of Lupus rashes, joint pain, mouth ulcers, etc just muscle pain and fatigue. Anyhow, Rheumy is retesting several antibodies to see if anything has changed and suggested I go on ANA testing can produce a positive result without any actual disease process. This typically signals the presence of antinuclear antibodies in a healthy individual. Talk to your doctor about a positive ANA and best next steps for further evaluation.
