Lab results positive and negative???

Hey guys and gals. Wanted to know if anyone knows why I have a positive Ana,lupus anticoagulant,and elevated sed rate but the doc says I don't have lupus. I've been reading your posts and it's like I'm reading my owns thoughts. Everything hurts. Like I fell asleep in the street and a concrete roller drove over me. Also experiencing a tremendous amount of calf pain along with the joints, face rash etc. Am I crazy or can these blood tests show positives and negatives and go back and forth? Thanks for any info you can give me

Please read the following re: Lupus anticoagulant



I am sorry to hear that your tests so far haven’t resulted in a clear diagnosis. Has your doctor requested a repeat of the tests to rule out false positives?

Lupus can be a difficult condition to identify. If you haven’t seen a specialist yet you might want to ask to be referred to a rheumatologist who will be able to investigate this further.

If you need more information about lupus and how it is diagnosed, you can request or download one of our free packs at
