I have had ulcerative colitis for 6 years.
I hurt my leg late last year and it took 6 months to heal when it shouldn't have taken any longer than 6 weeks, which got the doctor to do some blood tests.
3 months ago (and while my colitis was under complete control) I had a speckled ANA reading of 1:1200.
Since then my colitus has flared up and I had another blood test resulting in an ANA reading of 1:2500
My doctor seems to think that the ANA reading is completely and wholly linked to my ulcerative colitis. My colitis specialist thinks that they're completely unlinked.
What do you think? What should I do now?
