... VeeJ has given you some excellent information:). I would just like to add a little personal experience......when I was first dxd with SLE my ana was 1:40 speckled, low sed rate........but I was also tested for anti-dsdna (highly positive result) and c3 and c4 levels were both low and several other things like igg (high) were off. At the time I was covered with disc... (6 replies)

... I suppose it is possible that you are misdiagnosed, but your symptoms sound pretty typical for sle. I too have had/have petechia. Some of the spots on my arm have been there for about 1 1/2 years. Also, if you tested positive for ant-dsdna......that pretty much seals the whole Lupus DX. Could it be that you are flaring/getting ready to flare:( ? (10 replies)

... Hi to all, I went to my rheumy yesterday, and she finally gave me the definitive lupus diagnosis. She said that she has diagnosed other patients with less symptoms; my symptoms are there, just mild or vague. I have a rash but it is more of a blush, and it's not in the classic places; I don't have low complement levels or the dsDNA antibodies; my mouth sores only last a... (7 replies)

... With Lupus has anyone ever experience a TIGHT throat?? And an achy head? It doesn't hurt to touch..just to flex. I wouldn't even know it was sore if I didn't flex it... You know what I mean? And what is prednisone? I keep hearing it.... the years of living with Lupus are you guaranteed to have at least one major organ affected?? Last question. I felt... (1 replies)
... DSDNA is a specific test for lupus and yours came out in the low positive range. Your ANA is very high. I would bet my bottom dollar that you've got lupus. ... (1 replies)

... Hi there... I'm still plugging along waiting for a dx... at this point the rheumy (young, inexperienced and overworked) said that since my ANA was negative the one time it was done, she'll say it's not Lupus, because if I was that sick the ANA would be very high. She tested me for vasculitis, because of the low c3 c4, but she did the ANCA test althougth those vasculitides... (29 replies)
... Hi there, My concern would be that you require more testing in order to figure out why those levels are high. There is a great number of things that can cause liver enzymes to become elevated.. my suspicion would be inflammation. I would push your doctor to get you treated before things really go bad- after all, we only have one liver. Have you seen a Rheumatologist? ... (1 replies)

Yet I had complications when I was pregnant, my immune system was attacking the lupus... (3 replies)
... Hi It means you almost certainly have lupus assuming your symptoms fit the clinical picture. Anti ds DNA is specific for lupus and the other results are highly indicative. You need another doctor ASAP. Meanwhile make sure your urine has been tested. Some of these doctors......................... ! Clare (3 replies)
