    Question Autoimmune disease?


    I'm sick all the time, flu like symptoms, achy joints, headaches, tiered all the time, fatigue.

    lab results
    Ana titer 1:640 speckled
    anti-dna titer 1:20
    ra- neg
    everything else is neg and normal. What can be wrong with me?

    Hey Eerbes,

    I can relate to your post-- it's pretty much what one of my many questions were going to be on this health board. :/

    I've gotten back nothing but a bunch of "normals," all my life and have felt everything but. Do you seem to get new issues each year whether they stay or not? And is there a specific moment where you noticed you started getting sick all the time?

    I've recently gotten my blood drawn (again!) and am assuming that my results are not going to show anything is going on; as usual. (This is even the second time I've gone to an Endocrinologist and now I've come full circle because I've been redirected to my primary doctor)

    I'm sorry you're going through this, too. I wish this reply was a helpful answer.

    Hi. With the test results you have you need to see a rheumatologist. The results you posted are consistent with Autoimmune Diseases.
    Speckled Pattern
    A. Most common, least specific
    B. Disorders Indicated
    1. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
    2. Mixed Connective Tissue Disease
    3. Scleroderma
    4. Sjogren's Syndrome

    I have Sclero & MCTD. There specific test the rheumatoid can order to help distinquish. Fibromyalgia can cause all those symptoms as well but not those test results. Plz see a rheumy.
