... I would definitely see someone else. Not all lupus patients get butterfly rash. And fibromyalgia does not cause fever, nasal ulcers, or hair loss. You have several symptoms seen in lupus and should have other antibodies tested, inflammatory markers, urinalysis, bmp, etc. I would not accept this answer, insufficient workup or diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Sorry you had this... (1 replies)

... I went to see a Rheumatologist today because I had a ANA 1:160 homogenous pattern, low grade fever, fatigue, muscle tremors, nasal ulcers, alopecia, stiff and achy joints especially in morning.

... 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)

... Welcome to the boards! Yes an ANA of 1:320 is significant. The lowest level positive is 1:40, then 1:80, then 1:160, then 1:320. In the clinical setting of pericardial effusion, which occurs generally as a result of pericarditis (inflammation), it is probably related. Pericarditis is one of the more serious manifestations of lupus. Your Dr's will likely diagnose that disease... (1 replies)

... Thank you. I did read sticky notes. Although I am 22 year old caucasian male (which is quite rare to get this disease), a lot of the symptoms match.

... Actually, those numbers are your actual results, not that amount lower/higher than the range. So both are significant enough to mean something. My guess is that your titer will come out at 1:160 +or- 1 titer. You can visit the lupus board and read over the sticky notes about symptoms, etc., to see if very many match how you feel. Some are more specific to lupus than others. (5 replies)
