    I noticed the great answers you gave another poster about her blood test results.

    My doctors suspected I had Lupus. My ANA came back normal, and my skin biopsy came back normal. BUT.... my GP stil thinks I might have Lupus because I still have the butterfly rash on my face and red arms with red splotches.

    Now, my question is.... are there other blood tests that can be used to diagnose Lupus?

    I know it can take a while to show up, but I don't want to wait forever because I don't want any damage to my body.

    Thanks, Jodi

    Thank you so much for taking the time to research and answer my question. I'm sure you are busy and I appreciate it so much.

    I wrote down the info you gave me and I will take it to my doctor. I think she is as exasperated as I am.

    You have been a big help and I do appreciate it.

    Jo :)
