Positive ANA and Raynauds??

Hello Everyone!! I have a positive ANA test of 1:640 speckled, ****....I went to my rheumatologist and once I mentioned that I had a very slight history of raynauds he just sat back and said "that is it" "that is why you tested positive for ANA." Is that true? I am a little concerned. I have had pain in my joints of my fingers, wrist, knees, and ankles. Not just uncomfortable pain but pain that brought me to tears. I recently had a baby and when I have to hold him or comfort him it is frustrating b/c my wrists and fingers hurt so bad...especially in the morning. Changing his diaper is sometimes difficult. I am 30 years old...I have extreme fatique...and I have a history of chronic pain due to a cervical fusion. I am not sure if the finger/wrist pain is from my previous cervical surgery or not. What is everyone's thoughts? Is he right? Is that why I tested positive for ANA.

Re: Positive ANA and Raynauds??

Sometimes you need more then one opinion. I'm a caretaker to my partner who
not only has Ca. but has been diagnosed with scleroderma (first Raynauds) First
she thought it was carpel tunnel..then arthritis, etc. etc. but finally she had
like five viles of blood taken and big questionnaire and this was the final dx.
If you're in NY I can make rec. for rheumatologists.
