Lung Nodule, D-Dimer elevation and ANA +VE

ANA can become positive in people with infections; viral, bacterial or fungal. However, it’s interesting that you have elevated D-Dimer. In some lupus you can have a positive caridiolipid enzyme that increases your risk of clotting. I see the lab work listed above but have they run Ig antibodies panels separate from ANA as well as run dsDNA/SSM?
I have not heard of nodules in Lupus patients. Do you have any of signs or symptoms other than the positive ANA?

@nikohl7 Thanks Nikohl.
They didn't test ig antibodies. Current symptoms are ribs pain(chest and back), back muscle pain, elbow pain.
redishness in the mouth (one side) and sleep problems.
