I am having pain in my hands and wrist and it started a few months ago. It is typically in the morning. I visited a doctor and she did blood tests. The result flagged in my blood tests was anti-Sm/RNP 2.8 and she has referred me to a rheumatologist, who cannot see me for the next two months due to busy schedule. Can you tell me what does it mean?

I would like to continue this discussion as I cannot get into my doctor for another few weeks and I am worried. The pain I have is in my wrists and hands. There is no numbness or tingling, just shooting pain and stiffness in the morning. The pain comes and goes throughout the day and sometimes in my shoulder joints too. I have attached my entire blood test report for your reference. I looked up SLE symptoms in internet and I do not have any of the skin ulcer, fever, etc. I am curious to hear your thoughts. Thank you.
