just received a copy of blood work done in June - It was the anti nuclear antibody test. It was positive/abnormal, with a ratio of 1:320 - which is moderate/high - and the pattern suggests Mixed Connective Tissue Disease.
All I have read is - not to jump to conclusions, it is only one indicator (a good indicator - but not always conclusive).
Was wondering if anyone has had blood work like this performed with some similar results and what that meant to your treatment plan.
I have tremedous pain from just above the jaw line to the bra line - no ROM from neck thru the shoulders. Have a moderate herniation of c56, lost of arthritis and bone spur complexes - have an appt with a new nuerosurgeon tomorrow.
Any guidance is appreciated.
