Do you need a positive ANA test before you can be diagnosed with Lupus ? Even though I'm showing classic lupus symptoms & also have fibromaligia, M.E, Pernicious anemia & vitamin d deficiency, my last appointment with my rhuemotogilst said she wouldn't do another ANA test as my doctor did one & it was negative ? I did get a nuclear bone scan although no results yet ? I don't know what the bone scan was for as its muscle wastage I'm suffering from but I do have extreme pain in most of my joints, I went on holiday there to Majorca with my family as my dad is currently suffering from pancreatic cancer and boy I didn't realize just how limited I am in my mobility although I always take rashes in the sun I still went out anyway, although the more clothes I wear the worse the rashes get & the leg cramps in both my calf's were herondous I also went to my dentist last week to try & get my damaged teeth fixed as I have gum disease, carries disease and she said because I suffer from a dry mouth that's added to my dental decay, sorry for the long post as I sit at my door with the soles of my feet burning so its another day without shoes, normally its because I've swollen so much I can't wear any, I'm so fed up, I just want my life back I've suffered so long & I don't want to be like this anymore. Excuse any typos I'm dyslectic so not the best at putting things into writing even though I'm remembering quite a lot today.
