Positive ANA Questions
Hello. I have just received a positive ANA result. I had two patterns indicated. Nucleolar Pattern, 1:80, and Dense Fine Speckled Pattern, 1:320. My provider wanted to test me because I have been suffering with severe dry eye for almost two years now. Interestingly, all my other ENAs were negative (including SS-Ro and SS-La, the two antibodies associated with Sjogren’s Syndrome). My question is: my doctor called the nucleolar pattern the “more concerning” of the two results but that the titer was low enough to “maybe not be anything.” Do I consult with a Rheumatologist now? Is it warranted? I’m feeling confused and lost. Does anyone have any advice?
