Can someone go into depth of preclinical lupus? I thought this was basically early onset lupus. I have all the same symptoms but it’s hard to diagnose because the bloodwork. Although, I do know that people who have negative ANA, can have lupus and people can have a positive ANA but not have it. I know that’s why it’s so complex and hard to diagnose. And that’s why they do not rely on just bloodwork. I started having my symptoms 5 years ago and I’m currently 22. My rheumatologist though has told me I have all the same symptoms but not all my bloodwork shows but I haven’t even had extensive testing yet and that’s why he said I have preclinical. I do have an elevated ESR I think is what it’s called? I thought preclinical was early stages lupus, but hear so much back and forth. He also did start me on plaquenil too. Hope this makes sense. Curious to know your thoughts.
