Test results back: High levels ANA and copper

I got my results from blood work and MRI of spine. MRI was fine. My T-3, T-4 and rest of thyroid levels fine, B-12 levels fine. The only things that did show up were High ANA and Copper levels. My doctor is now sending me to a Rheumatologist. I have only a slight idea what that is, something to do with arthritis or connective tissue problems. Has anyone else had high copper and ANA levels? I don't cook with copper and have city water so the high copper level is perplexing.
The good news is my eyesight is finally getting back to normal. But if anyone has some thoughts on this I would appreciate it, thanks.

Re: Test results back: High levels ANA and copper

There is an illness called Wilson's disease that is treatable, and mimics MS. It involves having high copper levels. I'm not sure how it shows in your blood work. You might want to do some research on-line about it.
