My new rheumatologist thought lupus or ra. my ana was positive homogenous answer 1:1280. crp 6.5 , beta 2 74, anti cardiilipon iga 15, igm 49 both high, antiscleroderma 70 8.0 high and all lupus anticoagulants high...I'm scared. Symptoms change daily almost. Some days I can't stand it...I was on humira for UC and felt great. stopped because clear colonoscopy and less than 30 days this started. I'm still using my backup supply but won't have it long. Any clues as to what is going on. Anyone else see these kinds of labs. Could really use your help. See dr. in 10 days or so

Welcome to Healing Well!

Check out the thread Lupus 101 (link below) if you haven't already. You will find that Lupus is diagnosed by having at least 4 of the 11 diagnosing symptoms, not by lab tests.

I assume it's the rheumy you will see again in 10 days? He should be able to get you some treatment to help relive your symptoms.

Were you put on any maintenance medications for the UC? That is a chronic condition that can easily come out of remission? I also have UC and been in remission for years. I had a positive ana and massive joint and muscle pains and swelling. Some of my doctors have blamed it on the UC. I hope you figure yours out quickly. Good luck.
Ulcerative Colitis (remission)
GERD Reflux taking Zantac
Recently low positive ana. Taking Leflunomide (arava).
Also taking Amitriptyline to prevent migraines.
