Hi folks. My name is Bethany, and I have been tentatively diagnosed with Behcet's, however, I have a positive ANA speckled, at 1:80.
I wonder if it is not Behcet's, but Lupus. I don't want to settle on one diagnosis until we know for sure, so I can get the right treatment.
I have had a range of symptoms over the years, but right now dry eyes, lack of sweating, muscle weakness, and numb patches are what is bothering me the most.
I was able to look over my clinical paperwork, and all the other antibody tests they ran were negative, or in the normal range. One thing I noticed though, is that there is one antibody slightly higher than the rest, the JO 1. It's only at 16, which is quite low, but I wonder if it's worth keeping an eye on because there are more present than the others. Do antibodies fluctuate over time?
