Hi, my name is Ellen. Recently my left eye swelled, which thought was a cornea abrasion, but the eye doctor immediately ordered blood work and a chest x-ray. I went back to the eye doctor and she told me "your lupus level is up". I didn't quite know what to say, because she had no idea that my mom died from systemic lupus. My family doctor said the test is normal, not to worry about anything. I do have symptons of lupus. fatique, arthritis, general aches all over, night sweats, and hot flashes during the day. These come and go. The blood result for the ANA titer says 8, they report it as being high with an ANA pattern nucleolar. Other blood work states my AGAP is Low, it is a 4, my A/G ratio is H, 1.9 and my WBC is low, but it is a 4.3. Any suggestions, should I have other test done, since my mom had lupus. Should I be concerned since the othomologists (sp.) was. Any feedback would be appreciated.
