Hi All -
Just wondering if someone could recommend a good rheumotologist in SE Michigan.  For some reason, my neuro and my MS spec don't feel the need to investigate why my ANA came back positive.  They want to wait and see how my symptoms progress.  I'm not the wait and see type of gal, with all the tests that I have had and all the things being thrown at me on what could be wrong, I like to see answers.  I'm about at the end of the line on answers since I've had just about every test there is for my symptoms and found many things, just not enough to DX me with anything!  Just treating the symptoms...  UGH...
 
Thanks for your help.

I think the first number is the best one but if that one doesn't work use the second.
 
She is wonderful. There are several doctors she works with but they tend to be @$$e$ so I would insist on seeing her. Plus she can usually get you in in less than a month. I hope this helps.
