Is my Raynauds and APS likely secondary to a larger autoimmune disease?
I was diagnosed with Raynauds and APS in 2006 with a borderline positive ANA. Lupus has been ruled out thus far based on blood tests. Mild scleroderma is only suspected. I am being watched at this time. What more can I do to achieve a definite diagnosis?

Hi.
Raynauds and APS, can be either primary or secondary.
APS can go along other auto-immune diseases also like, Lupus, Sjorgens, Bechets, etc.
Can i ask what symptoms you are having?
Also what treatment are you taking for the APS? are you on anticoagulants.
Also APS can also be found in thyroid disease also.

Sorry i have asked about symptoms, its just so if i know the symptoms, i maybe able to help you further.
I also suffer from APS, and Raynauds also.
Glad to have found someone in the same boat.Who treats your APS, a rheumatologist or an haemotologist?
Look forward to hearing from you.
Nicola.
