I've had issues with my joints hurting for several years now. My primary doctor in 2008, ran an arthritis panel and they said it was negative. They went ahead and referred me to a rheumatologist though and he did various pokes and prods and said that I had fibromyalgia. This same rheumatologist refused to do an ANA on me. He said that if an arthritis panel was negative that an ANA would be negative. I finally got a doctor to run an ANA on me. I got the results today and the ANA pattern is speckled with the antibodies titer at 1:320 with flag references A and H. I'm glad that I have a little bit of info as far as my aches and pains, however, I'm really upset that the other rheumatologist I saw refused to do the ANA a year ago!
