Re: temporary recurrring paralysis unexplained???

really appreciate speedy response jen that was incredibly quick reply thanks.

I saw a rheumatologist a couple of months ago who seems to think that my ana levels aren't that relevant because i don't have enough symptoms to qualify for an auto immune disease.

Do you think she's wrong? i wasn't entirely convinced that i'd had a really thorough examination tbh. Apparently only 5% of people have a positive ana level without there being an underlying auto immune disease so that seems like too much of a coincidence considering.

I was also told that the blood test i'd had for ana was also for lupus and that part of the test was negative. Any idea as to what's going on here? and even if that part of the blood test was negative, is that test conclusive enough to rule it out indefinitely?

Thanks again Raf
