So I am just curious, I think alot of others might be too.
***Not sure why it listed some things twice. I cant go back and fix it... I guess it will work the same.

Hi Mellissa, I put no official DX because you didn't put down one that said I am perfectly healthy it's the rest of the world that's sick! LOL.

The only positive lab I have is an ANA of 1:1280. However, I have many symptoms and my kidney biopsy basically came back as lupus. Therefore, my DX came easily and I have been given a DX of lupus by 3 different nephrologists and a rheumatologist. I know it can be frustrating but hang in there.

As of yesterday's anti-dsDNA results and the pretty pictures I showed the rheumy of my butterfly rash, I am diagnosed. Dandy.
I feel pretty good most days. I'm in great shape, actually. But I am more bummed about this than I expected to be. Throughout this process, I've been expecting the rheumy to kick me out as a poser. Was counting on it, actually.
