Hi,

Thanks for your help with the site. I am a bit technology challenged. I made a mistake with the garbage diagnosis as differentiated connective tissue it should be Undifferentiated connective tissue disease. My labs are as follows on 7-7-06 Anti-Nuclear AB Titer positive
ANA pattern speckled 1:80
WBC alittle low 4.0
All other CBC stuff normal All done by internist then refered to rhuemy

Rhuemy labs Comprehensive Metabolic panel all normal
CBC Normal
Anti-Nuclear AB positive Titer
ANA Pattern speckled 1:320
RH Factor neg

I do not know what these are for. I did not ask DR because I did not see these until I requested a copy of lab myself.
The remainder were within reference range:
Complement C3, C4
Cyclic citrullinate
Centromere AUTOAB
DNA AUTOABS DOUBLE dsDNA AUTOABS
CHROMATIN (histone-Chromatin IgG AUT
Parathyroid Hormone PTH intact
U1RNP/SNRNP IGG AU
U1 RNP/snRNP IGG
SCL-70 IGG AUTO ANTI
Scl-70-IgG Auto Ab
SM (SMITH) IGG AUTO
SS-A & SS-B IGG AUTO
SS-A IGG AUTO ABS
SSA-B IGG AUTOABS
I am sorry if any of this was redundant but I was just coping from the lab sheet. Also at the bottom of the form the doctor wrote (LUPUS?)

The doctor was very thorough since she sent me to get X-Rays of all my joints because of pain and nodules on fingerknuckles. Also since I was having specific spine pain I had MRI and found mild lumbar disc bulging and a compression fractue t3. She is treating me for osteoperosis. She is suggesting an injectible bone building material "FORTE" that I inject every day.
I voted to fo fosomax first. If anyone is familiar with the osteo med I would like to hear. I do have osteo Arthritis in my hands. Non erosive in other joints.
My doctor said to be patient. Her hope is the she doesn't have to give me a diagnosis of lupus, maybe connective tissue instead, but only time will tell.
How do you tell if you have organ involvement--through labs? I do and have always exercised but now the pain sometime prevents me from doing the level I was used too. I hate feeling like this.

thanks
