Went to my family Dr while in NV and my blood work showed positive for ana and my Dr followed it up and it came back up with a low positive RNP and polymyositis.
Symptoms include severe fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain, numbness in arms and hands and swelling in hands. Also said I have polycythemia vera. I was also born with a mild form of palsy which doesn't help a darn thing.
I moved to the Cleveland and had blood work done again. Now a negative on the ANA but still low positive on the RNP. Gave me a little depression quiz if you will which to be honest irked me. I am not depressed. Lord knows I have fought a lot of medical issues my whole life and my positive attitude has always helped me through things. I am 50yrs old and I know whn my body is not right.
My family Dr thankfully is following up and consulting with eht rheumy and I am seeing a Hematologist next week.
Frustrated but determined to get answers!
