Positive ANA: What might be the cause?

Hello Athenalee, please keep us posted as to your outcomes regarding Sjögren’s. I believe I have recently developed the same as a result of my SFN, having the usual dry eyes, mouth, ears and skin. I had to wait for 3 months for my rheumatologist appt. so the Sjögren’s hasn’t been actually diagnosed yet. I’ve been able to deal with the new symptoms and prefer not to take drugs if I don’t absolutely need them. I did have labs done and my ANA was negative. Due to diet changes a year ago for my SFN I have lost over 10 lbs. and am trying without success to gain it back! I wish you the best with your testing and treatments. Helen

Hello Helen, I see a PA in rheumatology on Thursday. I have PBC and Raynaud’s, both associated with Sjogren’s. My neurologist actually thought I might have it as it can cause neuropathy. Did you have the lab for SS-A/RoAb, IgG?
