Hello everyone, I am from the United Statesand saw your blog and thought I'd join. I am 33 recently had tests done positive ANA positive DsDna then sent to rheumatologist who retested Neg ANA and slightly higher still positive DsDna. I have a lot of the symptoms of SLE my mother also has and was diagnosed in her early 20's. I am not questipnong my symptoms I am only confused by the clinical side. I have heard so many contradictions on the Internet and from different specialists on the web even. My Rheumatologists suspects I have SLE only have seen her once last month for consultation. Has anybody on here had similar labs? My lab counts <4.0 is negative. 5-9 equivocal and 10 plus just positive. Mine is 14. My last ANA was positive with a speckled pattern.
