Thanks for your kind response AlwaysRosie!
I had two positive ANA tests in the past (before I was diagnosed with Crohn's and then once after) but when I went in for repeat testing last month to find out the pattern, it had disappeared (of course). I wasn't really given an explanation as to why it would come and go, but I assume it's because my Crohn's is in remission - Maybe?
I'm trying to treat all of my symptoms but sometimes after seeing so many doctors in different areas (derms, rheumies, gastros) I feel like no one understands my problems as a whole.
I hope that you can find some answers soon. Please share them if you can.,, It helps. and share how you feel emotionally also as often as you can. i know sometimes it is hard to do this. It is hard for me too. Money could not buy what this forum has given to me.
