Two years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus because of symptoms and positive ANA. Last month I decided to get a second opinion because I felt as though my Rheumatologist was cold and wasn't helping. My new rheumy ran a series of tests and found that my liver enzymes were very high and I was again had a positive ANA so she asked me to have more bloodwork to test for antimitochondrial antibody. She called me a week later saying that I am highly positive for PBC, refered me to a Hepatologist and said that she believes I never had Lupus. Instead she thinks I had this all along. I'm 42 and afraid. Please tell me what I can expect.
