ANA Question

Rate this Entry
I recently had my second miscarriage and my OB ordered numerous lab tests on me. One of ANA, it is positive 1:320 diffused and nucleolar. I says i have factor V leiden R506Q mutation. My Lupus was negative but whenever I pull up ANA 1:320, it tells me that I'm lupus positive. I don't see my OB for two weeks and I need to try to figure this out so when I see her I have my questions ready.

Can anyone help me??

    Nucleolar is associated with scleroderma and polymyositis, not lupus. Have them do a lupus anticoagulant antibody test. This could be causing your miscarriages. Just some ideas. I'm sorry for you loss.

    I was just diagnosed with Lupus today... I had a miscarriage 2 years ago.. which is around the time my symptoms started happening. Took a long time to figure out what was actually wrong with me. If you ever want to talk, I can relate to your loses. It's hard to find people that really least it was for me. Hope everything works out.

    I went to my OB/GYN yesterday to get answers and she had none for me, I was so devastated. I now have to go see a specialist, she calls me a "High risk pregnancy". I'm going for a second opinion before I see a specialist. I need to know what I am up against. I called a rheumatologist but they don't acept my insurance.. I'm so devasted and frustarted. I just want to know what is exactly wrong with me and if it can be maintained/fixed.

    Wow, thats awful, and frustrating. I live in Canada, and all my appointments and tests are covered. I don't know what I would do if they weren't! We still pay for our medications, but health insurance is available to cover that as well. I find it frustrating how LONG the procress is...what if it was soemthing else that could have killed me while I was waitng 3 months to see a specialist! You know? It's just very upsetting and frustrating. And when a doctor doesn't know, can't they make some calls and give you some answers so that in the mean time you have some peace knowing whats going on? Is there any way there is another Rheumatologist that your insurance does cover? I really hope you can get to the bottom of this soon... I swear the stress just makes us sicker.
