I just found out that my niece's bloodwork came back positive with a high RNP. mad
The doctor thought her aches and pains were from her low vitamin D levels.
She's getting an appointment to see a rhuemy soon. I had no idea her neck pain she had griped about a few weeks ago was bothering her so bad. She doesn't tell me anything anymore even though we share a house.
 
Her father had raynaud's.

Sorry to hear that about your niece. I have three young daughters. Now they have a mom with some autoimmune disease and my dad has MS. So they have it on both sides. I'm terrified for their future.

Thanks, I'll let you know if it's false positive or not. I'd hate for her to have MCTD it's the worse.

Keep your fingers crossed about your daughters that they inherited your immunity genes.
