Hey guys. I just joined this comm. of Lupus today. I had 1st joined MS, but since talking to my Dr. I'm not sure what I have. I do know that I've had positive symptoms of both Lupus & MS for a # of yrs now. She ran a bunch of blood tests on me last week, called me back to tell me that I had a positive "ANA" & that my "TIDA" (sp?? if I heard her correctly?) was over 160. Does this make sense to any of you? Have any of you had this type of blood test (or one that sounds similiar?)?? She also said that my blood work indicates some type of autoimmune disease & that... "I would much rather have Lupus as MS if I were you." She then proceeded to schedule me an apt. with a neurologist (not a rheumotologist)!?? Maybe she wanted to rule out MS 1st!?? Anyone out there with any thoughts / answers??
