My 5 year old daughter has been having on and off aches and pains. She is being seen by a rheumatologist. In April she had a positive ANA (1:160) and an equivocal anti dsdna.
They redid the tests 2 months later and now her ANA is negative but her Anti-dsdna is now positive at 1.18 (positive is above 1.10). Her RNP/Smith ABS was negative as was her Smith Igb.
Was wondering what this could mean while I wait for her doc to call me back. I thought for sure her ANA would be positive if her anti dsdna is also positive. How can one be negative and one positive?
Just curious if anyone has experience with this. She seems fine now. Random pains here and there but nothing where I would be too concerned.
Of course now I am freaking out (okay trying to stay calm)
