Hey Karen...You know thats the problem I'm having with a negitive ANA and I had the pre-eclampsia in my pregnanices- bad case- its called HELLP Syndrome where you liver and such start shutting down. Anyways, just wanted to let you know- I've done an extensive amount of research of this Lupus thing b/c I'm sure thats what my problem is...and you can have neg. ana and have lupus. Its called "seronegative lupus". You can also have inflammation (Sed Rate) and it not show up on tests - they do a C Reactive Protein that will normally show there if it doesnt on the SED rate...you prob. already know this...but if not - thought it might be helpful. Totally get ya on the insurance deal though - i'm kinda in the same boat. read my story. nice to meet you!
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I STILL HAVE A DREAM!
