Postive Ana & Dna (Ds) Ab


Recommended Posts

my ana is 1:80 homogenous pattern and my DNA (ds) AB is 8. my dr. is referring me to a rheumatologist to check for lupus. my scl 70, sed rate and c reactive protein is normal. i ve been down this road before and was told "i don't think it's lupus". i ve had to lyme tests. elisa positive and western blot negative. i was told "i don't think you have lyme", i have brain lesions, i was told "i don't think you have ms". i wonder the dr will ever figure out what this systemic burning sensation is.

The burning sensation sound like a sign of nerve pain. Have you been to a neurologist? I would want a new set of eyes to take a look at your testing? There is something going on here and you deserve answers. Hang in there . Has anyone considered a form of encephalites? Sometimes this can come on gradually. Wishing you the best and hope you find answers soon.

I would guess it is nerve pain. I am starting to get it. Even into the stomach etc. I had a positive ANA, and some blood protein abnormalities. After the hematologist, I want to see a rheumatologist.

There is something going on, and my impression is that you need a new set of eyes.

I really hope that you get your answers soon.

Hi Darline,

I found an article on the ANA and DNA. My son tested negative about 3 years ago for ANA but probably needs to be rechecked. I found this article interesting because it stated that Lupus may not show up for several years after a positive ANA. Just wanted to encourage you to stay strong and keep looking for answers. Here are a couple article. Hope they help.
