[QUOTE=Nicksmom1990;3509652]I got the skin biopsy results Friday and it shows no skin problems..hummmm, I would think with an ANA of 1:1280, nucleolar (pertaining to the skin) something would come up...

I have a rheumy appt on April 14th......[/QUOTE]

That's interesting,
I, too, have an ANA titer of 1:1280 and a nucleolar pattern. I also had a homogeneous pattern at 1:160. My doctor thinks I have early lupus, but not scleroderma because I don't have the skin changes. I do have acid reflux, which started a few months ago, and I know that is a sign of scleroderma. But it can be due to a wide variety of other conditions, too. I had a barium swallow that did not show scleroderma changes. There are different types of lupus, some that affect the skin more than others. I don't know if lupus would always show up in a punch biopsy.

Best of luck.
