Got a cm from the Doctors office today and I FINALLY got the results from the long overdue blood work plus some added blood work. The heavy metal posing came back NEGATIVE YAY!!! BUT the ANA came back POSITIVE! I was told since my RA factor's back NEGATIVE they think I am looking at LUPUS! Really!! I SERIOUSLY CAN'T CATCH A BREAK! Sorry for the venting. Please say a prayer for me. I'll find out more on the 13th.

Thank You New, I did some research on it and it terrifies me even more. Makes me wish for once that I didn't do any research before my appointment. I am just going to try and enjoy chaperoning my daughter's 6th grade dance tomorrow and taking her to get her hair done. Took her to get her nails done today after school got out.

I'm in the same boat. I think I get a diagnosis on Monday. They think lupus, Scleroderma, and sjogrens. I'm ANA positive as well. Other blood work thus far ( not knowing about Mondays results yet) have been negative. I still wonder if I have RA as well. Runs in my family. My grandmother died if it. Getting answers is half the battle. Hang in there.
