Re: Facial pain/numbness

Anemia is one of the symptoms of Lupus. The positive ANA (antinuclear antibody) test is usually indicative of Lupus as well. I also presented with a neuralgia (nerve pain) and mild anemia when I had my first big flare of Lupus. I would suggest you investigate it further. You can also have a combination of connective tissue diseases, so you may have a multitude of symptoms that don't fit into any one condition. I found heat to help with the nerve pain. Question: What made your doctor think that it was a false positive?
Hope you find your answers soon,
Best Regards,
