    This last test showed 1:160. Apparently, summer 2005 showed 1:320. (Just found out about that one when my doc mentioned it the other day). My doc says "I don't know that it means anything."

    Now why on earth bother to run the test if you're just going to shrug your shoulders when it comes back positive???

    He's ran a lot more tests. I go back next week. Also have an appointment with a neurologist and rheumatologist within the next couple of weeks. If I find out anything, I'll let everyone know. Waiting to get a diagnosis!!!

    Hi Lizzey,

    Yes, my ana has been 1:640 since I got sick 5 years ago. We've done very thorough testing in the beginning, and then again last fall.

    The docs did question Lupus due to other lab results in addition to the ANA... but they continue to rule out all other autoimmune diseases, and all agree to it being CFIDS.

    It is certainly a result that many of us have with CFIDS and/or FM... which sounds like what your docs are looking at. Did the doc actually say "chronic fatigue syndrome"? Did they mention fibromyalgia, or check the tender points? Let us know more about your diagnosis, and whether your docs seem to understand what you're dealing with.

    I'm glad you found this board! Tell us more about yourself :)

    I think it might have been only up to 1:160 though. I don't think it has been as high as yours. My RA is positive during flares too along with sed rate elevation and EBV virus.

    My bloodwork has shown + ANA off and on for at least the past 3 years. My doc told me it could be non-specific auto ammune disorder and he also mentioned that a lot of us with FMS show + ANA. He wants to continue to check on it. They have ruled out lupus. I have FMS/CFIDS and endometrios.
