You know that's something I've had a real problem with. I just feel so dumb trying to tell a doctor all of my symptoms. He's this little indian guy, that I can only "kind of" relate to. And half the time, I'll get into the doctors office and feel fine. I've yet to make it there on a bad day, where I have a lot of pain.
And since we don't even know what I'm up against, we can't do anything but try different tests. I just had a lymph node removed today, just to make sure it wasn't lymphoma, and as far as I can tell, the next step is either a colonoscopy, or an MRI. That's why I was wondering about the ANA. My mom found out that mine was positive, but that might have been from Mono. Anyways...Thanks for you help
