Denda, I also wanted to welcome you. I'm really sorry about
everything you have been through and that you still don't have any answers as to what is causing your health problems. As you have already experienced it can be a long frustrating journey to try to get an accurate diagnosis. As some of the others have said, a person's ANA can fluctuate between positive and negative and there is a small percentage of people with lupus who don't have a positive ANA - a positive ANA can be present in several diseases.
I'm glad you joined us and please continue to ask questions. We'll do the best we can to try to answer them. I'm afraid I'm not much help with the labs you listed - hopefully someone else can give you a little more insight into what they might mean. Do you know if your neuro is planning to send you to a rheumatologist?
Hang in there and know that we are here for you. Take care
