    Default Not diagnosed

    I have had "lupus-like" symptoms for 4 years, really probably longer, just not connected by the doctors. Nothing life threatening, joint pain, joint stiffness, skin rashes with itching, UTI, yeast infections, pleurisy, difficulty sleeping....... FANA was slightly possitive at 1:40, speckled and dsDNA was 1:20, many other blood test results were either very low normal or high normal. Blood pressure has been 145/91 quite a bit. Not diagnosed with anything for sure.

    Default Hard to get a definate answer

    I'm really frustrated too! I have been having symptoms for almost 10 years now and haven't been able to find out exactly what is wrong! I have a blood disorder called anticardiolipin antibody syndrome that has my blood 3x thicker than normal. That was diagnosed because I have had 7 TIAs (Mini-strokes) or Bells Palsy, depending on which Dr you ask....I have also had the normal joint/ arthritis pain, lethargy, rashes, breathing problems, etc.... I had an ANA test 2 years ago that came back speckled 180 and last week it came back 320. Obviously something is going on w/ me....I go next week to speak to a specialist.

    Hello Rosi, and welcome to WHL. Just an FYI, this thread is quite old, so you will most likely not recieve a reply from the original author. Sometimes new members miss the date in which a thread was posted (I've done it many times), and wonder why there is no response. I hate to let anyone feel ignored, so I just wanted to let you know that clicking the New Posts icon at the top left of the page will take you to the latest active posts by current members, and you are pretty much guaranteed a response there. And of course, you are welcome to start your own subject/thread if you like. Please make yourself at home, and enjoy!

    Hi Rosi;
    Welcome to our family . I am glad that you found the post and felt that it had some relevance to you. WHL was, as Rob mentioned to you, only about 1yr old at the time of that post and I was still learning how to moderate (lol). Now, it bothers me that the first response to that 2002 post was in 2003 and it wasn't even from me (uggh).
    I hope that I am doing much better in responding to posts and Rob is always on top of things.
    Again..welcome to our WHL family where you will always find that there is someone here to chat with, answer your questions, or to just offer you support.

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
