At the time of diagnosis 9 years ago, my blood was positive in almost every test. Now that I've been on medication for so many years, my blood actually looks much better.
At diagnosis: ANA - 1:320, Rheumatoid Factor - negative, Platelets - low, Sjogrens antibody - positive, Raynauds - positive, protein and blood in urine, positive anti-cardiolipin antibody, positive antiphospholipid antibody, positive dsDNA. Hemoglobin - low, white blood cell count - high, Sed rate - 100+
Now: ANA - negative, Rheumatoid factor - negative, platelets - normal, Sjogrens - positive, raynauds - positive, no protein or blood in urine, anti-cardiolipin/antiphospholipid antibodies - positive. All other tests are normal including Sed rate.
On paper, I look like a totally healthy, normal person. I have next to no Lupus symptoms or activity happening right now. I'm 100% Fibromyalgia these days.
Your list of test results look pretty much in line with what we would have at the time of a diagnosis. Do you have a diagnosis of Lupus? Are you seeing a rheumatologist?
