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.
