Hi all
Just thought i would keep you updated. I had phone from my GP today to tell me that my test results were back. They havnt changed i still have a positive ANA titre of 1:160 riased ESR etc. I have an appiontment on monday morning first thing( with the dr that delivered me lol) I am going to ask to refered to a Rheumy no matter what he says, do you think is advisable or not. He is a lovely man but a bit old school. not feeling to bad today just headache and wrist pain(2 yrs ago i would have thought this a bad day). hope you are all well at mo.

Hi Angie,

Well, I'm glad that you have at least had your results back even if they are unchanged.

I think that with your symptoms and the bloods (even if the ANA is not very high) asking for a rheumy referral is quite reasonable and indeed advisable.

Let us know how things go,
Katharine

I would ask for the referral too - I think it's a very reasonable request given the circumstances. Good luck and hope you get the referral without any problems. Let us know how it goes!

I agree, ask for that referral.

I do hope you get some answers soon.

Let us know how you make out moving forward and welcome to the board.:wink2:

angieb,
Was glad to here you had the results back and that you seem releaved to finally have them. Not sure if the #'s are high as am still learning all of that and what it means.

If it were up to me I would ask for the referral and hope for the best as far as a good doctor as some can be impersonal it seems. I am hoping that you find some releaf in knowing that you are on your way to getting some help with your problem.

Hope you are feeling well also.

Lupus treatment has evolved a lot in recent years. It is not very likely that your Good Old Family GP will be bang up to date.

I would definitely go for a referral, please make sure that the Rheumy you see is experienced in Lupus- they aren't always.
