... Thank you all for responding. My daughter is 15, and I do think her hormones kind of set this all off. Her struggles began in August of 2009 at age 13. As for her elevated ESR I have always been told it is due to all her inflamation from her CRPS. I guess it sounds like like there could be some more specific tests run. I don't know why this wouldn't have been done... (9 replies)
... mbbasketball & ddd15, I just noticed how different the #'s are that you two provided for RNP/Sm test: 6.something (msbasketball) vs. 300 (ddd15).

... Well you can order blood tests online and have them done at a Laboratory (same Lab your doctors use). So I just had to pay for the test instead of my insurance covering it. I dropped the results off to my doctor today and waiting for them to call and tell me what they mean. It has been an extremely long time since I have been to a rhematologist. The rhematologist said I... (9 replies)
... Neveragain, I've read that anti-RNP is seen in MCTD = mixed connective tissue disease. MCTD is a crossover syndrome, with features of lupus, myositis, and maybe scleroderma.

(4) Even skin specialists can't always diagnose a malar... (15 replies)
... Hi & welcome. While I have read that ANA can be positive in "just Hashimoto's", because yours has been this high---1:1280 and 1:640---AND you have some interesting symptoms going on, I'd want several things: New basic labs. CBC can turn up oddities in people with AI's. These aren't diagnostic per se. New tests for ANA "subtypes". ANA alone can't diagnose anything---you... (15 replies)
