I'm pleased to be part of the SRUK Community! Maybe someone has gone through what I'm experiencing?
I have Raynaud's and Coeliac disease. Recently, I have been experiencing acid reflux, muscular pain, dry eyes and trouble with the joints in my fingers.
I had a Anti nuclear blood test (indirect immunofluorescence) with a titer of 1.180 speckled and homogeneous.
When I went to my GP, He said I don’t have to do anything as many people have a positive ANA. The GP suggested doing the blood test again but this time it was an ELISA ANA and it came back negative.
My questions are, is the ELISA and IF ANA test the same? and are they the tests I should have to diagnose Scleroderma?
