    Birthday:

    Location:
    Ontario
    Occupation:
    student
    After a 5 month battle with demodex blepharitis, discoid skin rashes on my forearms and neck, extreme fatigue, terrible soreness all over, and brain fog I found out I tested positive for Lupus SLE (scattered ANA test, low hemoglobin, low RBC, ect) from checking out my lab results online.
    It all makes sense now, and as scared as I am, at least I'm on my way to diagnosing and treating all of these issues.
    I'm hoping this forum can ease my mind and help me understand what's going on - and how to cope.

    Here's my ANA lab results:

    Nuclear Antibody
    POSITIVE
    Nuclear Antibody Titre
    HI
    ^1^:^160
    < 1:80
    Nuclear Antibody Pattern
    Speckled pattern
    Nuclear Antibody Interpretation:
    A speckled pattern is seen in SLE, Mixed
    Connective Tissue disease (MCTD), Sjogrens
    syndrome and systemic sclerosis. Clinical
    correlation is required for interpretation.
