Hello!! I hope you start feeling better now that you are on the medrol pack. I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriages thats horrible to go through, it sounds like you might have lupus since they use ANA as an indicator along with symptoms so hopefully they will start treatment and help you feel better,
Have you ever had your thyroid checked I am sure you have but that could be affecting your hormones and maybe the miscarriages, as far as joint pain and such its a symptom of lupus and also fibromyalgia which unfortunately accompanies lupus so ask your doctor about that too, they have meds that will help with the pain that comes from that its like nerve pain, I explain it to others as arthritis in my muscles at least thats how it feels to me!! my doctor also said I have athralgia which I still don't fully understand I think its a different word for fibro in the rheumy family.
Hope you feel better soon and get the answers you need, don't be afraid to start researching and bring info you found relates to you to your next appt if your doctor is open to it, it could be helpful!! to your treatment!!:)
Good luck and talk to you again soon!!
