Hi, I went to a rheumatologist because my primary sent me for pain in my hands. He had ordered labs, but through the patient portal, I saw nothing mentioning this lab. The rheumatologist said there was little he could do for osteoarthritis and told me to come as needed. As soon as I got out of the parking lot, his nurse called and said they got a copy of the labs, and I was positive for AMA. She wanted me to go to my primary who is in the town I live and have more labs drawn. What does this all mean? Do I have cirrhosis? Or possibly lupus?
more labs drawn.
Has anyone been through this, and what does it mean? I know I could have cirrhosis but not sure if this means I have it.
