Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am worried about my blood work lab results. My RNP antibodies are at 2.3, speckled pattern 1:80, antinuclear antibodies, IFA is positive. I know I should not be diagnosing myself, but my findings is worrisome. Most of my symptoms match up with what I am seeing. I guess my question is, should I worry all weekend or go ahead and make an appointment with a rheumatologist given the results that I have seen in my labs?
