Hi to all,
May I suggest you look into Tick-Borne Illnesses? Having high ANA's is rather common. Heck my 9 yr old niece had high ANA's...and if her family wasn't informed about this illness,,,I shudder what path she'd now be on.
This disease "causes" joint pain,,,
fatigue, numbness, visual disturbances, to name a few.
Most important is to find a doctor who is educated in TBD's. Testing for lyme disease and the pathogens are unreliable. Lyme is a clinical diagnosis!
Many of us are tested by commercial labs and have a negative test result.
I did,,but I found a doctor who looked at the bands that were postive and then my MRI's (with lesions) and my symptoms and "clinically" diagnosed me.
here's a website that can offer help. lymenet.org
best to you,
