Undiagnosed autoimmune disorder?
Hello, I'm new to this so I have no idea if this is actually the right place to post so I apologise if it isn't.
I'm a 16-year-old female and I've been suffering from various symptoms for a while. I've had unexplained chronic migraines since I was about 10/11 which has lead to stomach ulcers on several occasions due to prolonged use of painkillers. I seem to catch every virus going around and have mild asthma. I have been sick for the past 2 weeks with headaches, joint pain, cough, fatigue, chest tightness, rash and swollen palms and bottom of the feet at one point.The doctor suspected Reynauds' Phenomenon and sent me off for blood tests. Results came back with low white cell count (Neutrophils 1.7) and a positive ANA of 160 with a speckled pattern. The doctor said it was diagnostically equivocal and suggested I get retested in 12 months time.
I was just wondering if anyone had any similar experiences or insights or what the problem could be because I don't seem to be getting any better and 12 months is a long time to wait. Responses are appreciated. Thankyou :-)
