Tested Negative for Lupus and ANA Test Results

User Profile
Just curious about my ANA results. They are in low titers, 1:80, but I do have pains in my joints. No real BIG symptoms though. I was tested for lupus just incase, and that was negative. I have had quite a few experiences with my body going numb and tingly(legs,arms..) Is there anything I should really be worried about? I also had cervical dysplasia, can ANAs affect this? And, can ANAs affect a pregnancy?

The symptoms you describe (pain in joints, numbness and tingle) could mean anything or…nothing at all. You might bring more attention to the cervical displasia, however. If it is a second or third grade diagnosis, it should be taken very seriously! ANAs do not affect dysplasia or a pregnancy but possible a HPV-infection will. You can request a HPV-serology to identify a possible infection.
