Sed Rate & ANA
If you have a positive Sed Rate and ANA, speckled, what could this indicate?
I have swollen, stiff, sore, red, hot joints (both knees and PIP joints in fingers).
Dry eyes and mouth
Rashes on face, chest and elbows (mild and not itchy, scaring or painful)
My GP and the on call Rheumatologist said (via the phone) that it was an autoimmune inflammatory arthritis and I have a 4 week dose of Prednisone and 800mg ibuprofen.
I'm a 21 year old female. I have Celiac Disease and asthma. I'm of normal weight, slightly low blood pressure but all other stats (pulse, temp etc) are 'textbook' (according to my GP)
I'm waiting to see a Rheumatologist, but it's going to be about a month.
