I have just had a problem with my a nerve behind my eye and a test has come back saying I have tested positive for DNA antibodies (47IU/ml)

Could I have lupus? I have had problems with bursitis and tendonitis for years and had cortisone injections all the time. Have a slight red face but since Xmas have sometimes had a very red face as though I am very hot. Can't say I am more tired than usual but really suffer with legs and back ache if I walk a long way. Any advice would be great while I wait to see a rheumatologist. Can the symptoms be very mild?
