Skin tightness, What could this be ?

I have dark patches of skin on my face. Lately I have noticed that my face feels really tight almost as if it's pulling. My doctor ran some blood test and I have a positive ana, so she referred me to a specialist. The appointment isn't for several months. What could this be?

THanks for the query
Positive ANA means that u r positive for vasculitis. It also depends on how highy the positivity is whether it is +,++ or +++.
The next step would be to order for ANA profile.
Meet a physician and take a second opinion. THis cant wait for several months

Have a healthy life
