I was told my last bloodwork didn't show anything autoimmune for arthritis or lupus. So now I have some questions.
Is there a specific test for these?
I'm assuming if it was just some sort of general autoimmune test, wouldn't the crohn's show up?
And if there is specific bloodwork for arthritis or lupus then wouldn't they just do that to diagnose crohn's or confirm diagnosis? Maybe I'm just not understanding what the GI's nurse was talking about. I've had some issues after my remicade treatments so they wanted to rule out lupus and RA.
