my rhuemie dr told on the 1st visit he was 90% sure I have lupus based on symptoms and a positive ana of 1:160 speckled.
when he did a 2nd round of blood work the ana came back as just saying neg- and the anti-dna, anti-sm and anti-ssb and ssa all came back with some small level to them. I still have the slight blush look across my nose and cheeks
"stiff hands and feet" back hurts alot ect. I go back to the dr 7/1/09 and also have reynaud's for sure.
I also had a 24 hr urine test that showed small 30 protein, and high rbc in it. Does it sound like I for sure have lupus and also what are normal levels for anti-bodies
