I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in 2009 and have been on Humira and Methotrexate. I stopped taking them in Feb 2016 because I lost my insurance due to a job loss. I moved to another state and... (1 replies)

... Your next set of blood tests will be helpful. The photos of your red arms and chest area are significant and should be shown to your Dr. It is possible a skin biopsy with immunofluorescent studies would be helpful for diagnosis.

... Hi & welcome. Rheumatologists use a set of 11 criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) to assess patients for lupus. You may find the criteria in one of the "sticky posts" (permanent info posts) located aright bove the user threads. Generally, but not always, you must meet 4 or more to sustain the diagnosis; but they don't have to be met... (3 replies)
... Welcome KM to the boards. I think we can help you. You do have several symptoms suggestive of lupus, plus two tests that support the diagnosis. 19 is not very high on the dsDNA, and many people with lupus have low numbers like this and do not have kidney involvement. This level fluctuates some, but for reference sake, some people have anti-dsDNA in the 100-400 range when they... (3 replies)
