I believe I posted in another thread of yours, so I won't repeat all I said before but I did want to mention asking for a CK muscle enzyme test when you feel you are having a flare of muscle weakness.

In light of that and the other criteria you mentioned, I would pursue it, as a podiatrist is not a specialist for lupus, and you deserve to have that looked into. Kudos to the podiatrist for ordering this test if he saw something or heard... (6 replies)
... Just to make things more confusing :(, my lab considers >10 ds DNA antibodies borderline +, so it is all in the interpretation. Perhaps you can check your lab sheet, but the bottom line, is how your rheum views that. Regardless, those antibodies need NOT be + for a diagnosis of lupus IF you meet other criteria, generally 4/11 listed on the ACR criteria for classification.... (3 replies)
