Ok so some back story... My lyme titer was positive, but western blot was negative. I've been on antibiotics for 3 months ,and worsening completely. my ANA is positive, RF was high, 1:160 speckled which i know is pretty "normal." My primary & neuro deiced to do more blood work on me. I just got the results. I'm not sure if anyone can help me with them, but my primary called and said he thinks it is Lupus.
Anti Jo-1 - 2.9
Anti-SSA - just says >20.0
Anti-SSB - 1.5
Anti SM/RNP - <16.0
and my ASO was 203.. so a very low positive.
My MCH in my blood count was only a little high, and RBC only a little low.
I've been trying to research myself, as I wasn't completely convinced it's Lyme either.
joint pain everywhere.
Extreme head pressure at the back base of my head near my neck
swollen glands in my neck
eardrum has been bulging & infected for over 3 weeks
dizziness/room spinning/feeling like i'm going to pass out
inability to concentrate
stuttering/stammering/not getting the word out
numbness / tingling in arms
There are more symptoms, but those are the worst. This has been occuring for over 3.5 months now. I'm a 25 year old female.
I guess my question is, what do the results up top mean. I tried to research online, didn't find very useful answers.
I thankfully will be heading out of state to see a Rheumotologist in Boston. But until then, I'm a little stressed/worried.
