... Thank you both for your replays ! Two years ago my b12 level was 259 ( 211-946 ) and the rheumy didn't even mention it that it's maybe low, but the neurologist now said it's kind a low even if it's in the normal range. the anti -dsdna cut off is 10 with this lab, and my being 22 I thought it's high, I don't know though how high this number can go ? I use to have these... (28 replies)

... Thank you for you response and kind words Vee. I am so frusterated and lost right now. I'm not sure why my doctor thinks it could be cancer, maybe from my periodic lymph node swelling. I see an oncologist next week to rule it out. It is difficult because my symtoms fit so many different things that I am unsure of what exactly I have and like I mentioned doctors here are not...

... Hi & welcome. I'm in the SSA subgroup, too, and was told that SSA (anti-Ro) can be positive in either lupus or Sjogren's syndrome. BTW, these two conditions can co-exist. How Sjogren's is Dx'ed: per my lupus hardcover, Sjogren's tends to bring a VERY high ANA, as high as 1:2580 or more. Also, tests for Sjogren's include Dry Schirmer's (measures amount of tears), Rose... (1 replies)

... Hi, whiteyowl, and welcome! I *think*, from being a patient & from reading, that positive SSA (a/k/a "anti-Ro") is seen in (1) Sjogren's Syndrome, (2) in "classic" systemic lupus (SLE), and (3) in a variant---and often milder---form of lupus called "subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus" (SCLE). Sjogren's can exist "standalone", but it's also seen in some people who also... (1 replies)
... Hi Everyone - Here's a little background. I started feeling bad in college, lost a lot of weight for no reason, etc. I never went to the doctor mostly because I was scared of what they might find (foolish - I know). Now fast forward about 10 years and I start feeling really bad. This is all flared up after taking Zithromax for a sinus infection. I went to my Dr.... (1 replies)

... Halcyon, hi & welcome. Sorry you're in this pickle & that rheumatologist didn't have definitive answers. I think it makes sense to try another dr. I was positive for anti-Ro (anti-ssa), not sure about anti-ssb. From what I've read and was told, those are seen in lupus, in Sjogren's syndrome, and in people with certain serum complement deficiencies, but I've never been... (13 replies)

... Dear rtmc, EStevens just added to the "recurrent kidney infection problems" thread some really interesting info about anti-Ro (SSA) that conveys why it's important for doctors to take it seriously. So you'll probably want to check that out. All my best, Vee (12 replies)
... Dear Shawnee, For sure, some of the autoantibodies "come and go" all on their own, but I'm not sure which ones shift the most often. Can someone else weigh in? ANA comes and goes, too. On TOP of which a positive ANA doesn't prove lupus, as it can happen in other illnesses; or go positive due to a passing virus; or be positive without the presence of illness due to a... (4 replies)
