Hi, I'd be grateful for any advise as I'm feeling really stuck. I saw gp back in sept as had been suffering bad fatigue, migraine type headaches aggravated by light, muscle aches and feeling really down, this had been ongoing for 2-3 months after bad chest infection and I was also pregnant at the time. She did blood tests which came back with ANA positive 160 and was referred me to rheumatologist who did more tests. and mentioned lupus as a possibility but thought unlikely as didn't have joint pain. Tests came back as ANA normal but anti RO was borderline. She sent me for fetal heart scan to rule out any issue with baby and made appointment for me to return and repeat tests later in Jan when my baby will be 2 months old. I was hoping everything would resolve once I'd had baby but I'm still really struggling, I've just got over another chest infection and still have bad fatigue, aching a lot and is really getting me down. After reading up on lupus I think I may also have butterfly rash on my face but I'm not too sure as its not too noticeable and I've always just thought was my complexion. Wondered if anyone can advise what my blood test results may mean and if they may point to lupus or anything else, I'm really feeling desperate now to get better and struggling looking after a 2 year old and a newborn. Sorry that was quite long, thanks for reading if you've got this far!
