Positive ANA results/Rheumatologist appt.

I have a question that is probably premature.  I tested positive on the ANA test that my neurologist requested. So now, I am seeing a rheumatologist.  I saw him previously in which he was not at all helpful.  I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and he was basically asking why was I there to see him. Now, with this positive test, I am going back to him. I want to know what to expect from him. My symptoms are severe muscle aches in my legs, ankles, shoulders and upper back. I have a weird tingling sensation that just sporadically pops up in various parts of my body.  I thought maybe someone on here might feel this too and already have an idea of what it is. I just like to go in prepared and knowing what the possibilities could be so that he doesn't dismiss me this time. He is the only doctor I can go to on my insurance. I am also still seeing the neurologist and having an EMG done this week. Thanks to any help!

I have had tingling, itching and sometimes a feeling of bugs crawling on me.  When I started the Lyrica it went away.  Not sure if it is due to the fibro or the lupus.  Good luck tomorrow!

If the weird feeling, especially crawling bugs is in your legs, it could be RLS.  I have that and my Neurologist prescribed Mirapex.

Thank you. We have checked that out and I don't have that crawling creeping feeling. I just found out that I have peripheral neuropathy, so that is causing it but thank you!!!
