Just a thought. Have you had your thyroid tested? Sometimes a lot of the symptoms you describe can be related to the thyroid (usually low thyroid). It would be worth getting tested. Also, sometimes even if you test negative for an ANA, you could still have an auto immune thing going on. Sometimes it takes time to finally get a diagnosis. If one doctor can't help you then it's time to move on until you find one that's willing to dig for answers.
Hey, yes i have gotten my thyroid tested many times and it has been normal. I am not 100% that when they were testing me for Acute Intermittent Porphyira they did an ANA since that is one of the tests for AIP, i have had a 24 hour urin porhpyria test done and the first one came back exposed to light, and then i did three more not during an attack that came back negative....for the ANA test do you have to be in an attack or will can you test at any given time... I have seen numerous doctors and i keep getting blown off. I am from Saskatchewan, so i have seen 2 internal specialists in Regina, and several gastrointologists in Regina and Moose Jaw and i have gotten no answers. My mom wants to find a specialist in Saskatoon, and if nothing there then we are going out of province to Calgary or Edmonton. I have a friend of my moms who has been diagnosed with a few autoimmune disorders and could not get answers in canada so she went to the states, so she will be setting up a fundraiser to help pay for me to go into the states and get help if i need too.
I had my thyroid tests done and they showed normal.
