Re: Positive ANA AB Titer with Nucleolar Patter??
I agree with VeeJ that you should read up and include Plaquenil in that. When I was first diagnosed, I was put on it and it, for me, really helped with the fatigue. It took a while but I am so glad I was prescribed it. It was a few years later that the more toxic drugs were added for me. I never really bought into the "stress" thing either, but then I never got any anxiety attacks, (even when my PCP told me that it was all in my head and that I was anxious - what a jerk!) but they are not associated with sclero, either. Def follow up on those inflammatory patches and get those under control. I had an upper GI immediately on diagnosis because of GERD (which IS part of sclero) and went on preventative medication against further damage. That, too, was a game changer for me. I felt a whole lot better! I had to weigh the side effects (possible osteoporosis) versus the benefits (saving my eosophagus) and carefully consider my Dr's advice. Oh, I did want to point out that you should be carefull when reading up and doing research because often times all you find are worst case scenarios, or mis-information, and down right scams designed to play on your fears. Keep us posted and as always, wishing you the best.
