... First let me say I am sorry you have been sick for so long without having been tested for lupus long ago. It's quite common for ANA to fluctuate between positive and negative, which invariably causes confusion, sometimes even for the Dr. ... (5 replies)
... Im so very confused also as ive got a negative ANA but consistently high positive anti DSDNA and positive chromatin both specific to SLE. ... (5 replies)
... I just had a ANA retest to check my titer and apparently it came back negative this time, so I'm confused. My doctor still definitely suspects of me having it and says this can happen, but I just wanted to know opinions. ... (5 replies)

... I'll mention it to one of my doctors! My neurologist originally wanted to prescribe it to me for my migaines but I'm allergic to NSAID's so he didn't. I've been in so much pain, I decided to risk an allergic reaction & have been taking naproxen and so far, haven't had any adverse reactions. I'm just nervous about taking more of it because i'm worried about an allergic... (5 replies)
... I do hope you get an appointment soon. If you are not on rx naproxen, you might ask your pcp for it. Since it is helping some, the rx dose is more than double the OTC dose, and insurance may cover the rx cost. It's 500 mg twice a day instead of the 220mg you get OTC. Please keep us posted on your progress. (5 replies)
... thank you so much for replying! I have been put on the cancellation list & my PCP did mention she would call and see if I can get in quicker, but every time she has done so it hasn't helped much. I've been taking naproxen which helps somewhat, but not a lot unfortunately. It is definitely a relief finally getting answers, because I had always suspected lupus but no doctor ever... (5 replies)
... I AM STILL HAVING THE SAME SYMPTOMS. CAN THE ANA CHANGE IN LUPUS OR OTHER AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES. HAS ANYONE ELSE EVER HAD THIS HAPPEN? ... (9 replies)
... Well I found out some interesting information today. Turns out an ANA can be like any other antibody. It can fluctuate. It can be positive, then negative and vice versa. ... (18 replies)
... theresacar, yes it is possible to have a positive and then negative ANA. I was positive twice and then after treatment, I was negative. I have stayed negative since then and I feel sometimes the same as I did when my ANA was positive but it comes out negative when tested. ... (10 replies)
... Thanks for this response. I thought I must be going nuts. My rheumatologist acted like it was my fault that a subsequent ANA came back negative; like I had somehow faked the first result. Then he wanted to argue with the dermo's report on the skin biopsy being consistent with lupus; said it didn't look like it to him. (17 replies)
... I say definately from what I read on here and other boards. He thinks though not because of the negative ANA. Well I wrote the Lupus. ... (5 replies)
... Rheumie had read everything before I arrived, then scanned it again in my presence before he started. ... (3 replies)
... y knew this would be the time it would finally show up. I have some funny lesions to show up, but never the MS type lesions. So I have been told I might have MS. Then I see that Lupus causes peripheral neuropathy which I have and the docs could never explain. ... (3 replies)
... Hi! I'm ONLY a patient, but the presence of not one, but three, autoanibodies seen either in lupus &/or its close cousins causes me to wonder. In particular, anti-Sm (like anti-ds-DNA) is typically considered VERY diagnostic of ONLY lupus. (In contrast, anti-Ro is seen in lupus AND in Sjogren's syndrome.) And not to mention how you feel...! Have you read much? Try the... (3 replies)
... I am not diagnosed. But I have had a positive ANA, slightly high RNP Antibody, slightly high Smith antibody, and a slightly high Sjogren's Antibody. Then when I was retested I was negative so the rheumie said I did not have Lupus. ... (3 replies)
... It's possible. My ANA has been negative then positive then negative and I was just diagnosed with Lupus despite my ANA that was the doctors exact diagnosis. ... (6 replies)
... In late July...for the first time, I had a high ANA reading and was told I most likely had Lupus. A week ago, I had my regular doctor run the ANA's again..and now they are negative...not low, but negative. ... (1 replies)
... opinions on what a borderline positive dsDNA test might mean in my case. I don't have a diagnosis yet. ... (6 replies)
... So I have read your post and it sounds so much like me. I to have Crohns but I have almost every Lupus symptom and have had a positive ana. The rhemotologist seems to blame my Crohns rather than looking into lupus. Lupus and Crohns are known to be linked. ... (12 replies)
... Leslie, if DS DNA range is < 1:10, then 1:40 would seem to be fairly elevated. But since your lab uses a different range than mine, I think asking a rheum who knows how to interpret "Crithida titer" results is your best bet. Btw, I believe anti-ds-DNA can elevate in people who *don't* have lupus, because of infection, etc.---so I'd ask about that, too. ALT relates to liver;... (18 replies)
