My bloods all came back positive from the beginning too. But the lupus panel tests weren't even considered for me until I was in the hospital with pleurisy and heart valve problems. So I have no idea how long I was positive for, before getting my diagnosis.
Your ESR is definitely showing inflammation. That test shows systemic inflammation, not specific organ inflammation. So you wont' know where the inflammation is coming from until more specific tests are done. Your kidney function is abnormal.... Hmmmm.... Have you had your blood pressure taken recently? I'm asking because my blood pressure is borderline high, and we don't know why. We tested my kidneys (24 hour urine, creatinine/Bun etc - like you had done). If the kidneys aren't working properly, that can cause high blood pressure. So get yours checked! I get my test results back on Tuesday.
What is the next step for you? Are you doctors testing other things?
