Hi everyone:
 
I was in the hospital a week ago..discharge with no dx.   Saw a rheumy while I was there she told me test will not be in until I was discharge, but all other blood work look fine.
 
Soo..My neuro told me that they were back.. ANA POSITIVE. Sooo. I called the rheumy she said yes they were but borderline postive...and she doesn't think I have lupus..more fibro.
 
Okay...saw MY regular doctor today, she told me that my ANA is 1:640 AND my anti-dsDNA is negative and sedrate is 7.   I was dx with fibro about 7 years ago.  So I excepted that and have lived miserly with the pain..all of it..twitches, leg weakness at times, pins and needles feelings,dizziness, balance, pain, weird sensations ,sleep apnea, etc... Even had another child.  My Doctor is good..   I have had 3 MRIs and cat scans, I have seen over 30 docs in the past 7 years (espically neuros) ... including last week. 
 
Any idea what is going on with me and my ANA?  I want to cry.. I'm sooo frustrated

ANA is normally elevated with an inflammation, have you had a Lyme test, what did it show?

No lyme test yet.. I did lab/blood work for it today.. I told her to run every test she could think of. I live in michigan.Is lyme common here. Never been to the forest or around animals or anything...sorry if I sound ignorant.

I think they are saying now that Lyme is just about everywhere. Good luck on your test! Hopefully you will get answers, what were you hospitalized for?

My main complaint was dizziness for days, weak off balance, and hurt like heck all over.  I'm use to flares when the weather acts up..but this was bad,,still feel awful.  Missed 3 weeks of work without pay!! Went back yesterday-broke!  But it is very hard.
