Hi, I have been suffering with a myriad of symptoms, the most consistent is joint pain in elbow, wrist and fingers. My hand will claw and lock. My GP recently ran some bloods and I had a positive ANA and anemia show up. Other symptoms are shortness of breath, fatigue, face sensitivity to heat which lead to rashes.
I went to see a neurologist last week and showed her my bloods, she said that most women get a higher tilter as they get older, mine is 160. Typically she told me not to worry. My question is do you think I should push my GP to refer me to a rheumy Instead and be tested for lupus. I'm getting desperate for answers and help. Many thanks. Dawn
