I have lots of abnormal blood tests. Does anyone know what they mean?
(I am female-age 56.) My main problem is trouble standing and walking. My leg muscle pain gets worse with movement. I also feel very ill and get rashes all the time.

Here is a list of my Abnormal Tests from three doctors:
ANA by EIA: 2.9 (reference <1.5)
SSB: 1.4 (reference <1.0)
AChR: 1.2 (reference .4) (done by a neurologist)
CCP: 30, 44 & 46 (Taken in the last few months),(reference 60.)
H.PYLORI IGG: 2.93 (reference <0.91) Doctor gave me a prescription for PREVPAC.)
RAJI: 37 (reference 78 (reference <63.)
The rheumatologist said the RAJI test "could mean many things...autoimmune disease, infection or cancer" :confused: Is true?
Blood abnormal: Alpha 2 globulin .23 (reference .11-.22)
Blood protein called: gammopathy
Urine: Albumin, alpha 1, alpha 2, beta, and gamma protein.

X-Rays Spine: (done last year).
"Vacuum phenomenon at several disk levels in mid and
lower thoracic spine. Degenerative changes in cervical spine as well."
Also: multi-level degenerative disc disease, mild cervical and lumbar stenosis.

X-Rays Hands: (ordered by rheumatologist this year)
"Joint space narrowing and osteophyte formation of multiple DIP joints and first CMC joint on both sides..."

X-Rays Knees: "both patellas spuriously elevated" (effusion, found by internal medicine.)

X-Rays Ankles: "Marked flattening of the arch of both feet with bilateral hallux valgus."

EMG: "Severe ongoing denervation of S1 and S2 nerves."
Doctor did NOT tell me what is causing it.

I am stiff in the mornings, and my muscles ache and get stiff with movement, and my knees are sore and weak. :( Does anyone have any idea what is wrong? Please help me. I feel very sick all the time.

  • Look into chronic Lyme, even if you tested negative (lymenet). The tests are not reliable.
