In Topic: Positive Ana Blood Test

Saw the specialist yesterday, he has ran some more bloods and urine and was reassuring it that it could be nothing.


Feeling a little less anxious but still worried.

I too have had positive ANA's but in the last few years it has been negative again. A positive ANA often means there is an autoimmune problem but it's not always Lupus... or even usually. I thought I had lupus too because I had arthritis for years but after being gluten-free for a good while, I am essentially arthritis free - it was the celiac causing my pain.


A nucleolar pattern is a bit of an unusual onethough, I'm glad you are getting it checked -  just to be safe. Sclerodema and a coupl of other issues can be associated with that pattern. http://labtestsonlin...es/ana/tab/test


Good luck!


Thanks, its so scary waiting, I guess once you get some more results you can just learn how to live with it, its the waiting game that is the hardest.

Thank you for replies, I am an anxious mess, I suffer anxiety most of the time and this fear is just emphasised with my anxiety. 


I am lucky I have got into see a rheumatologist Monday. 


My test results also shows a possibility of Ross River Virus, but it was inconclusive and a restest is required in 14 days.  I also had a virus the week before, so I am trying to think positive and maybe something else caused them to be positive although the levels were so high it has me worried, if it was lower I would think it could have been false reading but 1:1280 is very high.


Thank you I really appreciate the replies :)
