I am trying to figure things out. All of my blood tests are normal with the exception of my + ANA and elevated RNP (1.3). My Smith Antibody was normal. RE said that + RNP is the front gate to Lupus, Scleroderma, or MCTD. RE said I may be in the very beginning phase of my disease.
My symptoms have been: PVC's, fatigue, lightheaded, body/joint aches, psoriasis or eczema on scalp and ears, legs/feed and hands swell periodically, insomnia, geographical tongue, swollen tongue with occasional sores on tongue, tonsil stones, headaches, get real tired after being outside, etc.
I was told that I could have some symptoms of Sjorgren's Syndrome.
What are your symptoms and how long did it take for symptoms to progress?
What tests were done for the diagnosis?
