Hi everyone
Is there anyone out there that has negative ANA no matter how sickly they feel?

My rheumy dx me with UCTD but most of my symptoms fit under lupus. Have vitiligo, skin rash after sun, joint pain, chest pain (costonchondritis dx), have had pluerisy several times, severe fatigue, IBS, Endometriosis, neuropathy, hyperpigmentation, elevated liver enzymes (had to have biopsy due to them being pretty high most of the time I'm tested), problems with digestion, swollen lymph nodes, weird pain in my ribs and upper abdomen off and on.

Anyway, just wondering if there is anyone else out there like this or with similar symptoms.

I take plaquenil but it does not seem to be working very well. My rheumy also thinks I am getting sjogren's as my eyes are severely dry and had severed blurred vision due to the dryness so I use drops now.
I have been having some strange symptoms over the past 8 months and I just had the ANA test and it was negative. I have a few of the same symptoms you have- rib/upper abdomen pain (mainly on my left side), enlarged lymph nodes (in the left axilla region). I was diagnosed with costochondritis also.

Are your enlarged lymph nodes sore and where are they? Mine are very sore. I have had tons of blood work done and mainly everything has come back normal except borderline anemic and borderline hypothyroid. I have also had XRAY's, CT Scan, and many ultrasounds. The only thing that showed up was the 2 enlarged left axilla lymph nodes.

I think my next step is going to be a biopsy of one of the lymph nodes.
