I have had a fibromyalgia diagnosis for years but I have suspected for a long time that I may have an autoimmune disease. Docs would do basic labs and basic ANA and say they were negative. Symptoms are hair loss, infertility, Raynauds, muscle and joint pain, hypermobile joints, debilitating fatigue, dry mouth, skin and eyes, IBS, sinusitis, RLS, leg edema, migraines, dysphagia, dental caries, brain fog, pitting in fingernails, ridges in toenails, recurring Candidiasis and BV, pain in left ovary, low grade fever, (benign) lump in breast, dysmenorrhea, possible carpal tunnel, SI joint pain, rotator cuff injury/tendinitis, etc. My current PCP ordered comprehensive labs. I am not including all of them:
ANA SCREEN WITH REFLEX- positive/negative
ANA TITER - 80
ANA PATTERN - homogenous
ANTI-dsDNA - 2
SSA - <0.2
SSB - 1.8
MCHC - 31.7
RBC SED RATE - 13
TSH WITH REFLEX - 1.694
RHEUMATOID FACTOR <10
VITAMIN D, 25-HYDROXY - 26.9
Has anyone else had a similar experience? I have a feeling doc will say on Monday that ANA is barely a positive and that SSB is probably a false positive due to SSA being negative, but I know something is wrong and it's getting worse. Thanks in advance for any input.
