Leigh I had positive high Anti RNP not DNA/SS I had severe muscle pain and joint pain bright red knuckles and felt like my calf muscles ran a marathon but I didn't.I couldn't walk most days and would use the wall to drag myself to the washroom I couldn't have a bath and only could shower as I couldn't get in and out of the tub my hands were so bad I couldn't hold a toothbrush or do my own bra up.  I also had dry eyes and dry mouth I had rayanuads and violet broken capillaries I had a high ANA of 1:2560 I still have some fatigue.


MCTD had a high positive ANA of 1:2560 with high positive anti -rnp using antibiotic therapy and now pretty much better. With now a negative ANA for 6 months

I have a hard time gaining weight, in fact I lost 20 pounds in a little under two months. I also have thyroid disease and I know that causes my weight to fluctuate. This is the most I have lost in a long time and I am having a hard time gaining it back. I am slowly getting there though, I am up to 117 now.

This week I have been feeling really rough. I have been fevered off and on all week and just feel crummy. I am having a hard time with constipation again and I noticed that the weight I had gained back over the last two weeks I have lost again.

Uggh, I hate being sick.

I don't know what to tell you other then I have lost weight too and don't know why.

Good luck on gaining it back.
