... doctor I had been feeling off. Run down, anxious, and having some neck and body aches... I was worried about my thyroid. My blood work came back with a positive ANA 320. My TSH was 4.4 and he said it wasn't my thyroid. I was then sent to a Rheumatologist yesterday and had more labs and an exam. ... (2 replies)
... I understand that there are many parts to making a diagnosis of Lupus or other auto-immune disorders. My ANA titer in December was very weak at 1:40 with speckled pattern to now being 1:320. I also have had joint pain, rash on upper torso and fatigue for 17 months. I saw a new rheumatologist recently who dismissed the ANA titer of 1:320 as insignificant and said since the rash...

... Hi...last year, I suddenly began having joint and muscle pain. My dr ran tons of tests, including a full Lupus panal with all the antibodies. My ANA was ran twice (2 months apart) and both times were 1:80, speckled pattern. Then I found out I have thyroid antibodies and hypothyroidism. I also learned this can cause joint/muscle pain and a positive ANA(due to the hypothyroidism... (20 replies)

... Meaning what, does homogenous lean toward a diagnosis of Lupus or not? I have always had positive ANA's 1:320 with a homogenous pattern, but one tested negative, even though all the other tests were positive, so this immune system problem was thrown completely out of the window, and I am still very sick. But with that one being negative, my doctor said likely nothing was ever... (6 replies)

Pericarditis is one of the more serious manifestations of lupus. Your Dr's will likely diagnose that disease... (1 replies)

... My 13 year old daughter just received her blood test results and her ANA was titer 1:320. Her doctor said that she was positive for lupus and is scheduling us with a rheumatologist. But I've been doing some research (obviously) about lupus and have found conflicting information about a positive ANA. Is 1:320 a definite high number? Should I start worrying now or should I...

... write back before now! Anyhow, ANA is only a general test that can be positive in a wide variety of conditions, not just lupus. The ANA test involves doing successive dilutions, and inspecting the sample at each point to see if "fluoresced material" still shows up. ... (1 replies)
