Hello Everyone, I'm 30 years old and found out two weeks ago that I tested positive for ANA (with a titer of 1:1280) and tested positive for SCL 70 (3). I don't have any symptoms (other than cold hands - but it's winter) and the only reason I was tested was because I'm undergoing infertility treatment after having three miscarriages. My infertility doctor sent me to a rheumatologist for further investigation and he said he does not know if or how soon I will develop Scleroderma, but cautioned that my ANA titer was high. Has anyone else had a high positive ANA and tested positive for SCL-70 without developing the disease? It's been truly difficult for me the last couple weeks. Learning more about the disease has somewhat scared me and I can't sleep at night worrying about it. For now, my rheumatologist is recommending that I take one baby aspirin a day while trying to get pregnant again. Has anyone else had trouble with miscarriages while testing positive for both?
