Sorry I faded away a bit, I have been sick and also trying to get to the bottom of my daughters illness. Her Lyme test was borderline (still waiting on another one) and her ANA is still positive, we are waiting on the exact titer. She does have many LD symptoms, but as we all know that mimics other ilnesses and vice/versa. My question is with Lupus, what's the normal titer for it, or is there even one. She was negative for SCL70/Scleroderma (sp?) so I am still unsure. When we do get her titer back, I am sure our PCP will put in the referral to a specialist.
She will be seeing a LLMD in December unless we find something else in the meantime.
Her latest symptoms have been shakiness, palor, and chest pains. She has about 30 other symptoms on top of that.
Dx-FMS 2006, CDC positive LD 8/07, Ehrlichiosis-HME 9/07, Hypocortisolism (Addison's Disease), Cervical Cancer Survivor. Probably infected with Lyme since a teenager 20 yrs ago.
