    Question Just tested positive for ANA (perhaps lupus)


    I tested positive for ANA today, which could potentially mean I have lupus.

    I asked for the lupus test due to a plethora of musculo skeletal problems and night terrors (attributed to seizure activity).

    I'm going to see the doctor again this week, what else should I have him look into?

    So far I want to get my DHEA, CRP, and estrogen checked out.

    Anything else I should know?

    On a side note my white, red, platelets, etc were all in reference range. Tested negative for Lyme and rheumatoid.

    Thanks guys, hopefully I don't have it, but it would explain a lot of things.

    Inexplicable joint pain everywhere, ankles, knees, wrists, etc that is horrible for a week, and feels fine for a week.
    Mild and severe muscle tears all over the place, pec, hamstring, bicep.
    For a young healthy guy that takes excellent care of himself, doesn't add up.
