I am in a very similar situation. I tested false positive for syphylus in my first pregnancy, had pre-e and complications. During my second, my doc tested me for lupus and the ANA was positive but the second blood test for lupus was neg. She said it seems that I have lupus or some other autoimmune disease but that it isn't really bad. I've been feeling worse since I had my second daughter, but am finding that doctors really dont' know how to help me since my syptoms aren't severe. I think you have to have 4-6 lupus symptoms to be diagnosed with it. I'm on medicaid too so I don't get very good care either.

Things that have started to help me are:
Regular yoga and cardio
Eating less wheat and dairy
KEEPING EMOTIONAL STRESS TO A MINIMUM!!

I am going to try the akaline diet to see if getting rid of the toxins in my body help with my syptoms.
