Thank you for letting me join this wonderful group. I have read a lot of encouraging posts here and reading through these posts have been helpful during some very painful times. I have not been diagnosed. I had an appointment with a hematologist last week. My blood work shows strong evidence for Hashimoto's. My ANA was negative but I was borderline positive for anti-dsDSN. Most of my symptoms have been lupus like but I know the symptoms between autoimmune disorders can overlap. I have anemia, thrombocytopenia, extreme fatigue, mouth ulcers, photosensitivity, knee and finger joint pain, dry eyes, and others I'm sure I'm missing. I am looking for support and also curious to know if anyone has had a negative ANA but borderline positive result for the anti-dsDNA and if this led to a lupus diagnosis?
Hope you all are having a healthy, flare free, day!
