ana high with speckled pattern??

Hi i had blood test a month ago due to rash all over my neck and face. M gp rang last night and saod i need further blood test which ive been for today. Ive looked up the ana result and keep coming up with lupus??? Could i have the pos high ana and have nothing wrong with me??? All my life ive auffered with bad health. Svt attacks ibs attacks ulcerative colitis alopecia areata all have happened a couple times apart from the ibs. Im currently taking atenelol and am a mum to three kids. Ive just found out i am pregnant and am concerned what this means for me? Also the high ana could mean cancer or connective tissue probs?? I know im ranting but just worrying.

What this means is your doc will do some follow-up test.  There is no "one" test that results in a lupus diagnosis.  Your doctor will run several other test to see if they are elevated as well.  He (She) will also assess your symptoms along with your lab results.  It is a long process, so I wouldn't get too excited.  Stress can only make illnesses worse.  So be thankful you have a dr. who is taking care of you.

Congratulations on the new baby.
