Is this MCTD?
Would anyone with knowledge about these types of lab tests be willing to help me understand my results? My next doctor appointment is not for another 3 weeks.
Follow-up testing showed smith test was negative (2) as was everything else except for the RNP, which showed at 5 (equivocal range 5-9).
I understand the ANA results but am wondering if the RNP at 5 is borderline for mixed connective tissue disorder?
Primary care physician started me on Plaquenil after I screened positive on the ANA test. Symptoms are extreme fatigue, rash for 2+ years, malar rash 3 times in the past month, some minor joint pain.
Am I looking at the onset of MCTD?
