My sed rate and all other lupus tests are negative.
The only positive thing is ANA 1:320 homogenous and recently with speckled pattern.
Lupus is diagnosed by having at least 4 of 11 symptoms, where blood work is only one of the symptoms. You can have Lupus without any positive blood work. Read the link, Diagnosing Lupus, below for more information.
If you think your symptoms match up, make an appointment with a rheumatologist to get things checked out.
For questions about
Lyme, I'm afraid you'll have to visit the Lyme forum, I really don't know much about
it at all.
Best wishes, hope you feel better soon!
