... I've been having joint pain and hyperpigmentation on my face. I had a rheumatology appointment and was tested for autoimmune disorders. I never heard anything again, so assumed that my tests were negative. However I just phoned up to check - and the secretary read out my results to me: ANA 1:80 pattern nucleolar. She said the rheumatologist must have thought my results were... (4 replies)
... 2 years ago it was ANA 1:80 and the anti-dsDNA was 10, now it's ANA 1:40 with anti-dsDNA 22. So which is worse ? 2 years ago they said it's borderline and if I don't have symptoms, let's wait, they didn't dx. me with lupus. I had ( and still have ) unexplained hip pain ( comes and goes ), headaches and lightheadedness ( had them before, but usually around periods ), but 2... (28 replies)

... Hello I am new to this forum so thanks for listening. I went to my GP because of joint pain, fatigue and just an overall decline in health over the past years. She has known about this but after doing some research of my own I asked her to run some tests. I'm 41 and have had a hysto due to endometriosis, had both my appendix & gallbladder removed, have IBS, yada yada. I... (4 replies)

... I've had a few connective tissue/autoimmune symptoms for the past 6 months. My ANA has been positive at 1:80 for the past 3 tests (over 3 years). CRP and Rheumatoid Factor all normal. It's been suggested I might have undifferentiated connective tissue disease (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/334482-overview). The diagnostic criteria states- "....In order to... (0 replies)

... Tammy, I think there are at least two measuring systems for ANA, so you should ask which was used. There's a titer system in which 1:80 would be low, but there's an International Unit system in which it wouldn't be. So I think you should speak with the rheumatologist (not his staff), and also ask for hardcopy. Also, I think people can have SOME TYPE of lupus without a... (4 replies)

... After negative 3 negative ANAs I've now got a positive one 1:80 nucleolar. But noone contacted me about it. I had the tests done organized by a rheumatologist and noone got back to me so I assumed they were negative. I eventually phoned just to check and was shocked to find my ANA positive (all other tests negative). The secretary told me the rheumy checks all results and... (1 replies)

... Is a ANA of 1:80 considered high? I am just not sure of some of these tests. My regular doctor said it was borderline. I trust you folks here more on this. susanp :) (5 replies)
... nysue, I'm just a patient but I think your labs and symptoms could be suggestive of lupus, but only depending on your lab levels. To put your lab results into context, you really do need the reference ranges. Also, there are OTHER tests typically run when lupus is suspected, so you'd want to know what ELSE was run. Could you procure hardcopy of your labs? To illustrate.... (28 replies)

... I can share some of my coping mechanisms as well. I have had lupus 30 yrs and RA about 7-8? I take more meds than I like, but they all seem to help-Placquenil, Methotrexate, Prednisone plus Naproxen on an as needed basis. The thing I struggle with is fatigue and back pain constantly, then a mix of migrating joint pains. So I have my limits and tend to pace myself. My AM is... (4 replies)
