Blood work

Hi- so 5-6 years ago I had a positive ANA test and was told to see a rheumatologist. I was told nothing else so not knowing rheumatologists handle more than rheumatoid arthritis... I did not go. I have been sick for around 13 years now and no one has been able to figure out what it is. My new primary retested me for ANA and did a specific lupus antibody test. Surprisingly the ANA came back negative this time but the lupus antibody test was “indeterminate” at a level of 9, 10 being positive. She wants me to see a rheumatologist. I also have low vitamin D as always. I am scared of a lupus diagnosis. Has anyone had test results like this? Where I live I have to wait over a month to see a rheumatologist and I’d just like some insight. 
Thanks!
