I have a couple of questions about this. I had 2 positive ANA tests and 2 negative. The drs all mentioned lupus. It started when i couldnt use either of my hands, even to lift a drink to my mouth and my arm dr checked my ANA and asked if i knew of lupus. (then followed was hemotologist) not ONE has said it for sure! A year ago - i took all i could take with my lungs- it was shatp pain when breathing deep and odd 'cracking' type feeling when i tried opening them in mornings. The pain has never left but has changed to entire rib cage feeling as though i had been beaten with a bat- sometimes sharp pain but always pain. This past wknd i had 5 diff episodes of severe chest pain. always on right - same side w/ribs. I have had stress tests, so Im doubtful its actual heart. My family physician doesnt believe i have lupus and my rhuemotologist says ' you more than likely do'. Can any1 give me any advice ? I really cant cont playing tennis and doing my normal hobbies in this kind of pain.
