Me Too
Hello I know you posted this about month ago but I was curious what your outcome was. My situation is similar to yours. My ana screen was + and my pattern was speckled and my doc thought it was RA or lupus. It matched my symptoms: muscle and joint pain, hair loss, fatigue and chest pain. The rhematoid doctor told me its was fibro. It didn't make sense to me. I have a family history of RA and multiple sclerosis. So I was wondering what became of your situation. Please let me know. Thanks

Hi,
I'm 33yrs old and new to this website. I'm going to a rheumatologist this week because I have esr 50's, ana 1:40 and a crp 1.1. I feel like I keep getting the flu with the body aches but I know it's not the flu. I can barely walk when I get up, my eyes are always dry and when I sit for more than 10 min I can hardly walk due to pain in my hips. My memory is getting worse.I think I may have fibro or lupus..Any thoughts..i would love to hear them.

You need to go to an alternative or integrative medicine doctor immediately. Your body is toxic from something. It could be heavy metal poisoning, allergies to toxins in the air, water or even food. Also, yeast overgrowth is not out of the question. I know this is hard, but seek other opinions before going on a synthetic medication.
