    Elevated ana with Crohn's, need to see Rheumy?

    Hi. My 20 year old daughter has had Crohn for about 6 years. Has been on Remicade, doing great. Up until a few weeks ago, she had been having severe bone pain, so she saw doctor who took a bunch of tests. Lyme, negative, CBC, fine.

    But she received a letter yesterday stating that she had an elevated ana with a homogeneous pattern. They've already sent a referral to RA.
    Why is this important? I've read that ana levels can be higher with AI diseases.

    Why the concern?

    I've read that Remicade can cause this also.

    Do you think there's something else going on?
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thank you.
