Both ana test came back positive @ 1:320. Have had a lot of medical issues to get to this point including bilateral rotator cuff twice and both are torn again carpel tunnel surgery twice on right hand once on left. Ulnar nerve entrapment in both elbows waiting on surgery dates. Chronic fatigue, pain and heat intolerance. Any thoughts from anyone having any related problems ? Thanks in advance !!!

Welcome to our forum Danny. I don't mean to upset you, but after my ANA was 1:320 it took another year (I had already been searching and doc shopping for a year) before I got a diagnosis, and this is common. Please look at our Lupus Resources at the top of the posts and I think that if you haven't yet visited a rheumatologist, you should make an appointment. If you don't like that rheumy, there's nothing wrong with going to another one. Please keep us posted on how you're doing! Drop by anytime, to discuss a problem or to just plain vent. Love, Butterflake

Went to the Mayo clinic last year and no answers so came home went to Medical University of South Carolina and after an hour of the rheumatologist she had a idea of what the problem is more testing on the way. She has never seen these many problems all compiled into one package so they are all interested in the case so making progress.

My rheumy diagnosed me at that level.
I hope your shoulders get fixed soon.
