I was diagnosed with SLE about 11 years ago. Since then it has gotten progressively worse with many many symptoms. They always do a Speckled Titre test and it's usually <2750. Is the titre test any relation to the ANA? What is the relation of the Titre test to SLE and with these high results is there any explanation as to why it could get so high.
The symptoms I have are too numerous to list, but I am forced to lay down quite a bit during the day. Walking is extremely difficult now but I still do it to take my dog for a walk. My knees are in a bent position now but can't bend them farther than what a sitting position would do, and no one can explain that one, LOL. I also have severe back problems, lower, mid, and neck areas...it THAT any relation to SLE?
