... Hi all; Going through hell trying to get a diagnosis, as I am sure most of you have as well! Quick synopsis of what I have been going through: Muscle wasting of left leg & left foot is cold all the time & has barely detectable pulse. Seemingly pinched nerves in my neck for the last 14 yrs. Can put my neck & back out just turning over in bed or sneezing. Carpal... (21 replies)
... Hi Coco; My ANA numbers are the same as yours (as well as having the high Anti-ds-dna)... I find it curious that more is not being done. I need to get off my duff & get more bloodwork done. I have just been denied ODSP benefits. I expected that to happen though & am working on my appeal. I had not yet been dx'd with anything when I was first made to file. Since I... (21 replies)

... and a high Anti dsdna. Not, however by my first rheumy. My 2nd rheumy I like very much and is extremely knowledgeable about lupus. ... (21 replies)
... Deana, I actually think (but I'm no doctor) that the multiple high anti-ds-DNA tests are saying something important. This is one of the KEY & DEFINITIVE tests done for SLE, after all. You need to get someone to explain why it's NOT being interpreted as lupus, at least in my utterly non-medical mind. To contrast your tests to what mine showed---mine was a trickier... (21 replies)
... Hey Patience & Vee, Interesting response to the Lhermitte's sign that I mentioned. Many of my symptoms ARE in my neck. Sometimes it hurts so bad I want to vomit. However my B-12 levels are good, I had them tested not long ago. I take a sublingual B-12 supplement, as I cannot tolerate the shots. Not to mention the preservatives in them. Thanks, but no thanks! But I was... (21 replies)
... Hi, Dee Have you seen the "sticky post" at the top of the Board on test results? It has a resource you should check. Go into it, then into Rheumatology, then into "Lab Tests in Lupus"; then read the sections on ANA/FANA and on anti-ds-DNA. What's weird is that the article specifies an ANA level that's usually "met" in lupus patients. BUT there's ALSO, in the very next... (21 replies)
... and a positive high anti ds dna at 38..I think it said over 9 was considered positive. I have zero symptoms of lupus and am now scared to death I have lupus. Could this mean anything else? ... (9 replies)

... Hi Kimberlyn, Just to answer a question you asked, I'm on methotrexate, as well as Plaquenil (for lupus), mobic (NSAID), and a host of others for various problems from the lupus, including heart among them. We've had me on plaquenil since I was diagnosed and plan to continue it as long as necessary. It is a DMRD or Disease modifying rheumatoid drug. That didn't do the... (6 replies)
... So She Looked At My Last Labs From Last Month. And She Mentioned The Double Stranded Dna Thing, And That It's Positive, Or The Numbers Are High, I Forget What She Said. ... (6 replies)
... Hi Everyone - Here's a little background. I started feeling bad in college, lost a lot of weight for no reason, etc. I never went to the doctor mostly because I was scared of what they might find (foolish - I know). Now fast forward about 10 years and I start feeling really bad. This is all flared up after taking Zithromax for a sinus infection. I went to my Dr.... (1 replies)
... I had the same thing happen to me, and my first Dr.s said the same thing and ran the same tests, It is funny how identical what they said to both of us, right down to the passing a gallstone: which never happened. I have no idea what it is a stretching of muscle, in the ribcage, or just my costachondritis acting up severely. Ever-so-often it just shows up, and then... (21 replies)
... Thanks again both of you! I am going to print out some of this information that you have posted & take to my Dr. Sorry if I seem confused, it's sooo much to take in & I normally have alot of confusion with my Fibro anyways. Trying to see my way through things & find logic is tough for me. I got a weird statement today from OW. I am waiting to hear back a verdict on... (21 replies)
... VeeJ is right, as usual. The anti DS DNA and the anti Ro are Lupus specific. The only reason I suggested asking your Dr. ... (21 replies)
... Hi again Vee! Gee, you have been so very helpful!! Thanks for all this insight! So do you think I should see if my dr will do the anti-ro test on me as well? I cannot make my way around that site you mentioned for the tests, could not find anything of value, unless you can specifically give me a link? Thanks again! (21 replies)
... Hi gals, I also had the shocking feeling but it wasn't in my neck. It was coming from 3 herniated discs in my lower spine. It would shoot straight up my spine to the base of my neck as if it had a specific path to run. I did not have them for a while and then they came back. My Dr. and chiropractor scolded me for not doing my stretching and pulling exercises. They tell... (21 replies)
... Hello all who replied! Wow, I had no idea what response my post would generate. I am grateful for this. Where I was feeling very confused, I at least have SOME clue what to do next! My rheumy is the ONLY one in Southwestern Ontario who could take me. We have one here in a nearby city who USED to have a 2 year waiting list to get in. Now he does not take new patients...

... slightly positive ANA in Mar03 and in June 03 it went to highly positive ANA. I also have antiphopholipid antibodies and my speckled pattern ANA results show a DNA with high titers for lupus. Two years later I had a negative ANA and all blood tests were fine. ... (21 replies)
