Possible lupus?
Hi, been to doctors and been told I have a positive ANA titer of 1:640 speckled pattern. The doctor told me that was low and not to worry, However since I have found out it is quite high. I have Raynauds and my legs go purple. My glands are always swollen and lately whenever I move quickly my arms go numb and tingly and they feel stiff. I’ve also broken many bones easily. Such as falling over. I’m worried about lupus and wondering if this fits.
