... Thank you. I did take your advice and go to ER. It wasn't a very good experience, honestly. I started spiking a high fever again last night and my headache wasn't getting any better. On top of that I was getting petechiae type dots on my legs. Not only did they do nothing for my pain there was a lot of miscommunication. In the end the doctor thought the headache was caused by...

Dsdna testing
Apr 29, 2016
... Awaiting my first rheumatologist appt in two months and want feedback on test results. I've read some labs use <10 as reference point for dsdna, and some use <30. Why the discrepancy, and Is the presence of anti-dsdna antibodies significant at low levels (15.4) with 1:1280 homogeneous ANA? (0 replies)

... Anti chromatin antibody is associated specifically with lupus and may be an early marker when other tests are negative. As with other tests, you can't make a diagnosis based on labs alone, but with meaningful symptoms as well, these labs are significant. I would review the symptoms of lupus, see how many you satisfy, and take a list with you as well as your labs to your rheum,... (9 replies)

... I have SLE and have been taking Plaquenil for almost 2 years with ok results for the most part. When I first started on it, I was initially diagnosed with UCTD (I am ANA negative but C3 & C4 Complements were borderline low/normal), however last September the Dr. formally diagnosed as SLE. The Plaquenil was successful in bringing my C3 & C4 levels up into the normal range after... (2 replies)

... Hi & welcome! Above the user threads there's a section of "sticky posts" (permanent info posts) in which you could review diagnostic criteria, symptoms, labs, rashes, reading resources, etc. Certainly lupus can cause "pins and needles" but I bet many other things can as well...
