... We have alot of the same symptoms too. I was diagnosed with myofascial pain and then recently with fibromylasis also. Do you think that that is where your high ANA is coming from is the fibro, I don't know what to think, because nothing else was found. I also have a vitamin d deficiency. ... (9 replies)
... Have they tested you for any other autoimmune conditions? Some healthy people have raised ANAs but I wouldn't dismiss such a high ANA. As you probably know, normal is less than 1:40. Lots of autoimmune conditions can raise your ANA, and often specific patterns are limited to certain kinds of conditions. I'm fairly certain it is not common to have lupus with a speckled...

... nal testing and nothing showed up, so I know what you mean. I also was diagnosed with myofascial pain syndrome, so I was told that that could relate to the high ANA and it also could not, so I don't know what to think either. I also have Raynauds too and hypoadrenalism. ... (9 replies)

... It depends on the lab as to what the "normal" parameters are. By my lab, a 1:40 titer is normal. Above that (the next ratio is 1:80, then 1:160, 1:320, etc) is considered high. The IgM is considered a risk for Anti-Phospholipid Antibodies. My ANA has never been over 1:320 in a speckled pattern, and my IgM is barely elevated, but I've been diagnosed with both lupus and APS.... (3 replies)
