Positive ANA test. Headache, breathlessness, fatigue, motor control issues, high carbon monoxide. Any suggestions?

Very concerned about a friend. He had a positive ANA test - 2 positive tests, actually. He has been experiencing headaches , shortness of breath, fatigue , balance issues, motor control issues and tested positive for a high concentration of carbon monoxide in his blood. Initially suspected it could be MS. Doctors are now sending him to see a rheumatiod specialist. Any suggestions on what he should be asking about or requesting testing for?
