Red face Blood Test Results??

I finally got my ANA results. They were positive but low 1:80 speckled pattern. Does the speckled pattern mean anything?
This Dr. never even called me. He mailed my results to all my blood work with a 7-word note.
"You don't have a connective tissue disease." That was it. He also failed to mention that I had blood in my urine and my allergist caught it and retested. I had a raging urinary track infection.
I go to see a new Dr. in June. Hopefully I will get some answers then.
Thanks for your help.

How 'bout a 7-word note in return, such as, "Have you considered working with laboratory rats?" Just a thought . . .

Ha! Ha! Thats a good one!
Actually I thought about a reply a whole lot longer but decided that my anger was better spent in finding a Dr. who was interested in helping me.
