  1. Hello, I really hope that you guys can help me a bit with following problem: One year ago I went to my rheumatologist because I had stiffness in my fingers and pain (in the morning and also in the night). It always gets worse in summer when It gets warmer (it is somehow also linked to sweating). There were days when I could barely write because my hands felt puffy, started to sweat a lot and were extremely stiff. My doctor found out that I have scl 70 antibodies, my ANAs have been always negative (I do regular check ups), no rheumatoid factor, all other Blood values
  2. Hello. First post here. I am having some concerning symptoms and blood work and my various web searches have brought me to this forum. I am 42 years old and have had Hashimoto's thyroiditis for about 25 years. I have been taking thyroid medication since then and have monitored it closely. My current symptoms are mild Raynaud's, mild dry eyes/mouth and fatigue. I also have a serious case of Oral Lichen Planus which began about 3 months ago and is only getting worse and more bothersome. I am prone to tendonitis which resolves with rest. I do not have any skin thick
  3. I am new to the forum, and need advice, help, consoling. 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Then a heart problem, tachycardia and an intoleration to exercise, I was put on an inhaler. Then I passed out and was diagnosed with MS and put on several medications to control it. Eventually, I started choking on my food, it felt stuck in my chest and I would have to vomit it up. This started happening on a regular basis and I finally went in to have my esophagus stretched. I was told that this is not common with MS. I had some scarring, GERD, and a hiatal
  4. Hi! I am a 30 year old female with 1 child. I had an ANA test because a doctor wanted to make sure my silicone implants were not affecting me. My ANA came back very high which started this journey! I went to a hematologist and tested positive for MTHFR and Antiphospholipid syndrome I went to a rheumatologist who said I seem healthy and have no symptoms. My bloodwork just came back that I still have high ANA 1:2800 and Positive centromere Titer. My rheumatoid factor is 17. What can be causing all of this with no symptoms at all? Should I be worried. This is a lot of information to
  5. Hi all, I'm a 29 year old woman with diagnosed hypothyroidsm (Hashimoto's) I have a few symptoms, although I have seen many doctors they tend to ignore me. My symptoms are: -For 1 year already I have been having night sweats, got a bit better with thyroid medication -Raynaud's (diagnosed) and chilblains in cold -Numb hands and feet at night, or when I cross my legs etc -ANA came always negative but the last one was 'weak positive' with all sub tests (ana panel) negative -ESR and CRP very low I have no fatigue, joint pain, swelling or stiffness. Doctors I've seen told me not
  6. Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and, like a lot of you, am having difficulty getting a diagnosis. I will try not to be long-winded, so in brief: ~ Diagnosed with lupus in 1991, via a COOMBS test ~ Besides joint pain, malaise, Raynaud's, and the occasional malar rash, pretty much asymptomatic for 20 years. ~ In 2011, developed dry eyes and mouth, doctor suspected Sjogren's and wanted me to see a rheumatologist. ~ Rheumatologist said I tested negative "for everything" except a very low titer, speckled, which he said could mean mixed connective tissue disease but it was
  7. 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 li
