I have my first appt to the Rheumy on Monday. Any tips on how I should handle it? I am hoping for a Lupus diagnosis. My PCP conducted an ANA test and the results were: Homogeneous speckled 1:640 or actually it says ">=640 TITER Homogeneous Speckled" I think from my research that means 1:640, correct. Can someone help me understand it?
I have had major pain and rashes for years and unable to work since 2009. I have had two butterfly rashes as well and EXTREME sun sensitivity, fatigue, severe joint pains resulting in my using a service dog for 4 years, a walker for 6 years, and now a cane. Any information, advice, etc. would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks all, love being here glad I found you guys!
