And the results are in....
Well, PCP is calling it a Lupus/Sclerdoma overlap.
I had an elevated ANA (1:320), a high RNP antibody (172 with 100-120 being normal) and a high SCL-70 antibody (195 with 100-120 being normal)
What irks me is my ANA pattern came back as speckled AND homogenous. Can anyone shed some light?
Thes results have been a long time coming. As hard as it is to process, it's also somewhat of a relief.
