I was diagnosed with MCTD late 2008 because my RNP was positive with a high titer. I was tested because some of my levels on a random blood test (given by my PCP) came back questionable. I did not and still don't have any symptoms. What were any of the symptoms that you guys experienced which led to a diagnosis? If I didn't have the blood test I would still be walking around feeling and thinking I was fine. What symptoms should I be looking out for?
