I am a 53 year old from the Uk i have positive antibodies Ro and La i have had joint heat and pain with morning stiffness , irritable eyes, dry mouth and terrible tiredness for 4 years, i asked for the ANA test this year as i was just being dismissed by my GP ,they then referred me to the rheumatologist ....... the schrimers test was negative as were my inflammatory markers . 4 years ago i was diagnosed with microscopic colitis too \(mild) i still have the pain from this so feel that its all linked ?
My rheumatologist seems to think that this is not sjogrens but chronic fatigue brought on by pain? can anyone advise me please i am feeling so frustrated its making me feel like maybe i am just imagining it all ? my rheumatologist says peple can be antibody positive but not have the illness ?
many thanks Maria
