Recieved a copy of a letter sent to my gp today from my old rheumie. Apparently I missed my appointment with him (which I cancelled as I am under a new rheumie now). Anyhow the letter said my recent blood tests results (taken in August!) show that I am ANA positive 1:80 (nucleolar) but everything else was negative. Why has it taken him til now to send me this!! I saw my new rheumie just before christmas and she was of the understanding (as was I) that all my results had been negeative apart from a slighty raised ana that originally got me sent to a rheumie. Had she known of this other positive would that of helped towards a diagnosis? Also what does the ANA result me? What does nucleolar mean? Thanks xxx
