I just got my check up blood tests of lupus tests (anti DNA, C3,C4, ANA) after taking 6 months of Plaquenil. All are negative, even sed rate is normal, - Which over the summer I had high ANA, and sed rate.
My rheum has been treating me for lupus/sjogrens since July. I also have vasculitis. She told me 2 months ago when I got severe raynauds that I do have lupus & sjogrens. Now my tests are normal does that mean now I may have to go over this waiting game all over again? Or can Plaquenil cause autoimmune tests to be negative. This past year has been horribly draining on me and so stressful over all this. I will see my rheum this coming Friday but now I'm anxious now that I will have to relive the whole "undiagnosed thing" again. And now my husband is so happy and said "Maybe you don't have lupus". I'm sure I don't need to explain to any of you how that feels.
Sorry to rant on about my personal problems. I just wanted to know if Plaque can make your tests change?
Thank you so much for any thoughts, opinions!
