My ANA test has come back positive. The titer is 1:40 (low) with a speckled pattern. The anti-centromere, anti-scl 70, anti-sm, anti-rnp, anti-ro, anti-la, anti-ds dna, C3 and C4 compliments and RPR all came back negative/within normal limits. In addition, my sed. rate is borderline high at 20 and my CRP is elevated at 1.9.
My follow-up with the rheumy is not until March 29th. Since I have other symptoms, I am guessing this is not a false positive, but you never know. The last ANA I did was negative and my CRP was lower. Could that suggest I'm in the early stage of whatever it is I have? (sclero or mctd or something else) Maybe the titer/levels will continue to rise? Has anyone else had a similar situation when diagnosed?
And now the waiting continues..... I'm very curious to see what the doc says about all of it.
