Life With Lupus

Shows Positive Lupus but

Question:
I saw a new Rheumy this week, did lab work, ect. The receptionist called today to tell me the results showed I was positive for lupus but in the normal ranges.
Can someone explain what this means?
I certainly don't feel like I am in remission that's for sure. I've even questioned whether it was getting worse.

I was tested positive for lupus (ANA test) in my early 20’s and had NO symptoms during that time. Fast forward to 64 years old … it reared its ugly head September 2016.

Ive never had very many symptoms either. An occasional rash or achey joints. Thinning hair is the worst. Almost 15 years no really bad issues other than hair thinning.
