Hi y'all I was just wondering my doc tested my ANA and it came back positive so she finally referred me to a specialist wich I was told could take up to six months to get into. He called and I have an appointment on Friday. I'm not worried I am just so excited to finally be getting answers. Have you guys had any positive ANA results and what was the outcome. Thank you!! 😊😊
Mine is because of Sjogrens. I'm glad you have been referred out. Keep track of every symptom and any treatment & how your body responds, and take it to the appt. Hugs love and prayers you'll get in before 6 months! 🙂💕🙏🌸
I hope you get answers soon. I received my first positive ANA in 2014. After numerous tests, and 3 doctors later, I still don't have a definitive answer. So far, the closest I have gotten is Fibromyalgia secondary to an undetermined autoimmune disease. One doctor thinks Lupus; one leans to MCTD. It's frustrating.
I was Dx with Lupus & dermatomyositis and Fibromyalgia. I'm finally getting answers to why I have been so fatigued this past year & 1/2, plus the hypothyroidism, severe anemia. My pain was is so bad that when my lap dog crosses over my leg I get sharp pains. I was started on Plaquenil and low dose steroids. I've been having frequent headaches, nausea, etc was told body needs time to work. I was to the steroid would give me a boost in energy well I'm still waiting for my boost.
lol Always u sound exactly how i felt this past year. Went in thinking at worst i would need back surgery and came out with MS, appt with rhumatologist for ana test, and and endocrinologist because al my vitamins and testosterone are low. Yaaa lol
Hi just an update I went to the specialist he has no idea which were his words. He has been working as a rheumatologist for over 40 years and he has no idea so I am going to be poked and prodded at till we figure it out.lol So here goes nothing.
Tkdgal. Plaquenel usually takes months to work. After that it was/is effective for my RA. I took methotrexate at first and until plaqenel took effect. Then weaned off of methotrexate. Have successfully maintained with the plaquenel. Symptom free with sjogrehns, too.
Wish I had luck with fibromyalgia meds. Am going to try acupuncture next.
