| | Is it plausable if Doc wants
to recheck my blood chemistry again in three months? I had it done last week and again my ANA was positive, my ANA titer is 1:160, low wbc under 3000, low rbc. Last year the ANA was positive with titer 1:160, low wbc and low rbc. I do not have the butterfly rash but do have a rash on the upper cheek only on one side but it has been there for ayear and spreading. I have mild arthritis in the hands and feet. Unusaual cyst like nodules that were discovered in '98 on the lung, liver, kidney and now a huge one in the knee joint, all being benign in nature and also throughout my spine a lace like hemangioma benign. I also have spots on my palm and elbow where there are raised itchy blotche areas that come and go. The achey all over feeling etc. I also have pernicious anemia and been giving myself injections every 2 weeks for 8 yrs and a myriad of other annoying medical conditions. He says we should watch the blood work before accusing Lupus and was wondering if this is normal to do? A wait and see approach!
