After posting yesterday I had a couple of lovely responses from some people with psoriatic arthritis and I thank them. I was wondering though, if anyone with RA had also tested positive or not. As many of you know I am changing meds, they are being given a month to work - if not then biologics have been discussed. Ho hum, and am only 8 months into this journey and am hoping that something else doesn't rear it's head. Why does life Before RA seem another country! (Deep sigh)
Follow up to positive ANA test: After posting... - NRAS
Hi Rosie. I've not been offered an ANA test or had one and I think many others on here would answer the same. I just googled it (!) and saw a link to this site which may be helpful to you. southtees.nhs.uk/services/p...
You are a star! Yes, it appears that a positive one can occur in RA patients but it could also be a forerunner of the autoimmune disease taking a slightly different or parrallel path. I know that the Consultant was concerned that Sulfasalazine might induce a rash - now I understand why. Many thanks for taking the time to google it - that was very kind.
