Hi JB1!

I also had my lupus diagnosis confirmed recently with a positive anti-dsDNA test result. I was a bit more fortunate than you, it seems. My cautious rheumy called it UCTD when I first saw her, and was treating me with Plaquenil and an anti-inflammatory already.

It's a bit of a mixed bag, isn't it? You are relieved to finally have a name to put on the problem, but now the problem is confirmed. Even after 2 years on the diagnosis path, I still had a bit of a pang when she wrote lupus as my official diagnosis.

Good luck, and I hope the Plaq qorks quickly for you!
