... y will retest an ANA several times to see if the titer raises. Another comment I have is that a negative ANA has no pattern seen. So if you have an ANA that is positive on the scale listed by the lab, it will have a pattern. It can say something like "rimmed" or "speckled" or "homogenous" etc. ... (11 replies)

... Kooze, since you are just getting diagnosed and have not started any treatment, it's normal to feel frightened and just want to escape the reality of having a chronic illness. Unfortunately it will not just go away, but you can feel better in time with appropriate treatment. The meds used to treat SLE take some time to work, and a combination may be needed depending on how you... (1 replies)

... I saw a rheumotologist last week. Based on my symptoms and positive bloodwork, he said he can't say i have lupus but he can't say I don't have it. He said i'm in a very grey area right now and only have 3 out of the 11 criteria. ... (15 replies)

... Depending on the method used for ANA screen, some wont show pattern & titer. I know mine do not, because the ANA is reported positive if only one of the ENA's are positive (in my case, its anti dsdna) Again, depending on test method, chromatin antibodies can quite specific. Its also seen in drug induced lupus, lupoid hepatitis (AIH), rarely in sjrogrens, scleroderma, or... (3 replies)

... Is it normal that a specialist ( my neurologist ) doesn't call back even after I called her office for a test result ( autonomic test ) ? I have these other problems since I saw her and I was ready to discuss them with her when she calls, but I'm looking for a new neurologist right now (she missed my anti ds-Dna being 22 anyway on my blood work, and if I hadn't ask for a copy...

... Oh Sue, on one hand, a mystery maybe solved, but on the other, such a long time of not knowing what was really going on. Very frustrating indeed. I feel for you and see how the stress builds up. The good news is that if it is trigeminal neuralgia, and very well could be, there are meds that can help with that and you have a neurologist who should evaluate that for you. May be... (28 replies)
... I know that I don't need more stress in my life, but it makes me angry, the neuro dr. had the tilt table test results last thursday, and even that I called her secretary today ( I couldn't wait ) the dr. didn't called me back.
