Need some help!
Jul 11, 2017
I went to the doctor about a month ago with major pain in my joints of my hands. Also I had several nodules that come and go on my fingers and my fingers have a weird numb sensation. I also suffer from extreme fatigue. The doctor ran several tests and one came back positive. It was an ANA 1:320 with a neuclolar pattern. I've seen a rheumatologist who sent me for a ton of X-rays and more labs. The X-rays have all coke back normal and I get the labs next week. Could I have a false positive ANA?

ANA can be positive in a number of conditions. It is rather nonspecific, but with this titer level, pattern and your symptoms, I doubt it is a false positive. The other tests and xray results should yield some helpful information. I am glad your rheum is checking it out further. Feel free to share your results when you get them, or write if you need support while you wait.
