Posible Lupus diagnosis
I’ve had high platelets for the past 20 years and have been living with primary Addison’s and hypothyroid for the past 27 years. I literally never feel good. I’ve been seeing a hematologist and she decided to run an ANA on me.
ANA Ab screen POSITIVE
DNA (ds) Ab, Crithidia IFA POSITIVE
Rheumatoid factor 14
SM Antibody negative
SM/RNP Antibody negative
Sjogren’s Antibody SS-A 4.1 POSITIVE
Sjogren’s Antibody SS-B negative
SCL 70 negative
ANA Titer <1:40 ANA pattern none detected
DNA AB (DS) Crithidia TITER 1:40 TITER H (<1:10)
I know I definitely will be diagnosed with Sjogren’s, my mouth is dry and peeling with inflamed gums.(can lupus cause the same mouth symptoms?). I have noticed last year when I was in the sun a lot I had an uncontrolled itchy rash on my arms. Can high platelets also indicate lupus? I appreciate any feedback on my current blood work. Do you think I might have lupus?
