My symptoms are as follows: Mom has epstein barr Subnormal temp... (9 replies)

... Good to know alicake. Thank you! My rheumatologist and allergist both told me about the 15% of the population with a positive ana and nothing else, but they said those are not usually a high positive like mine (1:1280).

... I can't say Quest wasn't appropriate with their testing. I don't know. But there can be false negatives that occur in ANA testing. I would just have it rechecked again to be sure of the results. My guess would be that your Lupus may be in remission. ... (8 replies)

... A + ANA does not always mean lupus. Many of your symptoms are suggestive of a low thyroid level, and an autoimmune thyroid condition (hashimoto's) can cause a + ANA.

Instead, the systemic form is Dx'ed by meeting at least 4 of 11... (10 replies)

... In the labs you posted the anti dsDNA is significantly elevated and that test is very specific to lupus. Could you please repost the rest of the labs with the reference ranges in (). These vary somewhat lab to lab, and would help in evaluating whether neg or positive. Thanks! (9 replies)
... ANA is positive in a variety of conditions, not just lupus. And it can also be positive due to a passing virus, aging, etc. So your GP makes sense when he says elevated ANA doesn't prove lupus. ... (6 replies)
