Hi, I'm new to the forum so just finding my way around. I'm awaiting more blood results after my ANA came back 'presumptive positive' but it's away for further tests. Still awaiting all my other results. All were clear 2 years ago when my specific symptoms appeared, particularly skin rash, except my CRP which was sky high, but it seems not so this time. So not diagnosed as yet, but my various symptoms fit with Lupus (and, of course, many other conditions), and am awaiting another rheumatology referral.
I'm anxious and sore, so am glad to be among people who understand a bit more than some of my friends and colleagues. I'm also choked with the cold at the minute, so feel even worse! Hopefully it won't last long
