... Hello, I recently had some lab work completed by my rheumatologist. My anti-dsDNA was positive 30 iu/ml and I have a high CRP 7.8. Does these results plus my symptoms indicate Lupus?

... I'll mention it to one of my doctors! My neurologist originally wanted to prescribe it to me for my migaines but I'm allergic to NSAID's so he didn't.

I'm just nervous about taking more of it because i'm worried about an allergic... (5 replies)
... I do hope you get an appointment soon. If you are not on rx naproxen, you might ask your pcp for it. Since it is helping some, the rx dose is more than double the OTC dose, and insurance may cover the rx cost. It's 500 mg twice a day instead of the 220mg you get OTC. Please keep us posted on your progress. (5 replies)

... thank you so much for replying! I have been put on the cancellation list & my PCP did mention she would call and see if I can get in quicker, but every time she has done so it hasn't helped much. I've been taking naproxen which helps somewhat, but not a lot unfortunately. It is definitely a relief finally getting answers, because I had always suspected lupus but no doctor ever... (5 replies)

... my symptoms, and my blood work from ER and Urgent Care. She said that there's stuff that catches her eye, but it's not enough for her to bite into. She said my dsDNA antibody from Urgent Care was positive and that tends to go with Lupus. However, she wanted to run more blood work. ... (22 replies)

... Sjogrens does cause vaginal dryness in some, so that is certainly a good idea to pursue. The biopsy may even help with the diagnosis of it. If you are over 35, I would consider perimenopause as women with lupus often have early menopause. (6 replies)

... In reviewing the beginning of this thread, a few things come to mind. Your chest pain sounds pleuritic, which is pain in chest upon taking a deep breath. It is often stabbing, sharp pain and is intermittent but lasts minutes to hours at a time. It is caused by inflammation of the lining over the lungs and inside the chest cavity, and is a classic symptom of lupus. Pleurisy... (5 replies)
