Hang in there! Do you still present with 4 of the 11 symptoms of Lupus? Remember that we can be diagnosed without a positive ANA, it is just an 'indicator', not 'proof' of disease.
One thing most of us have found is that getting adequate symptom treatment is much more important than diagnosis, and it sounds like your Dr started on the right track with the Plaquenil.
Unfortunately, since little is known about
how or why Plaquenil helps, it means we don't know if or how it may or may not affect ANA levels.
We talked before about
CNS Lupus & Neurophysiological testing, right?
I know you want a diagnosis, but maybe Lupus isn't the right one after all.
