I have been feeling pretty sick for a while and seeing a whole bunch of doctors! I have quite a few symptoms that I'm not gong to go over now. I feel that I could have lupus. I saw a Rheumatologist who agreed that I likely have an autoimmune disorder. He ordered Lupus and Sjogrens tests. He told me he thinks I could have fibromyalgia and Sjodrens together, (not lupus). I got some labwork back but do not go back to discuss diagnosis for two more weeks. Its driving me crazy! I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this? I am going to post my lab results - does this look more like Lupus or Sjogrens?
-White Blood Cell- LOW- 3.8 * 1000 mm/3 (normal begins at 4.5 *1000)
-ANA Ab: Positive 1:80
-ANA IFA: Positive 1:320 (Speckled Pattern)
-SSA (Related to Sjogren's?): Moderately High and Positive
-ENA (Smith Ab + RNP): Positive
-Neut Percent: Slightly Low
-Neutro Auto Abs: Slightly Low
NORMAL RELATED LABS:
-Rest of Complete blood count: Normal
-C3 & C4: Normal
-CK (creatine kinase): Normal
-SSB (Related to Sjogren;s?): Normal and Negative
-double strand DNA: Normal
There is so much overlap between the two that I cannot figure it out, which in turn is driving me crazy! I've been feeling so fatigued and sick. Also, I meet 3 of the 6 criteria of sjogrens and 7 of the 11 criteria for Lupus. Please let me know if any of you have had similar results and what your final diagnosis was!
Thanks a bunch!
