ana positive something fighting joints help
Hi I had a positive antinuclear antibody test that came back positive with 160 homogeneous when it is supposed to be at 40 I don't know my doctor has tested me for viral infections which came back negative what is clear to the doctor is that something is fighting me in my body attacking my joints I'm going to a rhemuatologist but I don't know what to expect they will test me for lupus and so forth but the doctor doesn't think that is it and tested negative for rhuematoid arthiritis but I have some type of arthiris now from whatever has been attacking the funny thing is that I had some serious injuries bout three months I think knee and feet and fingers knuckles now since about a month ago they seem to be inflammatory not all at once though so far swelling is down on my knees but it's not in my fingers and hand has anyone had these symptoms the only family history I have with diseases is leukemia which took my mum's brother at an early age and Alzheimer's on my dad's side no arthiritic conditions except for housemaidens knee I just hope I am able to catch what's causing this early before it does more damage I'm stiff in my fingers all the time now put a warm ice pack on and got some functionality back in one finger but it didn't help the others
