I've had ana's be positive then neg and pos the next time. I think it depends on the labs. I don't understand why they would just suddenly stop the meds. I know that a lot of mine have to be weaned off or you can have withdrawal type symptoms. I would call the dr if you don't get better. They are there to help use feel better. Good luck.

I have pos ana then neg ones also. I think it depends on wheather your flaired,up or not. The pos. ones come when I am flaired but when I am doing good they sometimes are neg. But my dr. would never dream of taking me off my meds. What meds were you on. I agree they should be weaned off not just abrutly stopped. I would recheck with your dr. about that.

Gentle hugs to ya SandraC,
Go back to your doctor and ask for an explenation as to why he took you off the meds.
If his only reason for removing you from the meds is because of a neg ANA test then you ask for a second oppinion from another doctor as you are STILL feeling unwell and you disagree with removing the meds.
Perhaps he thinks the meds are not doing what they should be, and wants to clear them out of your system before starting you on different meds.
That has happened to me a couple of times before they found medications that actually worked for me. But he SHOULD have explained that to you first.
You need to speak with him again.

I would get a 2nd opinion. When I did I was suprised I not only had Lupus but also Pos Ra which my other Rheum. did not find. I would seek another Provider.
Gentle Hugs and Good Luck.

I too had negative results and my doctor said ''oh it must be M.E''. This has just caused me to worry more.To make things worse i just sat there and asked no questions....lol..... i so wish i had.So i have wrote to him instead. Also, i have also been advised to ask for a second opinion as i too feel ''poo''. So if i dont get a reply from him by letter, i will ask for a second opinion......so i hope you do too. :)
p.s i was going to just leave it but strength from all the people here are helping me get tougher.....so i decided i would imagine all the people here stood behind me at all my appointments from now on....come on....:)
