Lupus Screening?

My mom and my grandmother both have lupus and I've been extremely tired lately and bruising very easily. my doctor has decided to do an ANA test? I didn't get to ask much of anything since i had found out through a voicemail. Just wondering if this is a long process or what all this entitles as im only 21.

  • I'm not sure....but you can check out http://www.28below.org and maybe find the answer there (it's a lupus awareness foundation for people 28 years and under).

    You can also look it up on facebook...http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/home.php?sk=group_174005265949701&ap=1
