Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
1. Rheumatoid arthritis
2. Multiple sclerosis
3. Charcot marie tooth disease
4. Inherited types of muscular dystrophy
5. LUpus or other connective tissue disease
Really though you need a comprehensive consultation at a large referral center, here in the US I usually recommend St Judes or Mayo Clinic
You may need to go overseas to get a diagnosis
Hi, Thanks for your reply. I have had tests for somethings. I have had a rheumatoid factor test twice which was not positive, C reactive protein again not positive, ANA assay which is always speckled but my doctors seem to ignore that.
Speckled ana indicates connective tissue disease
It indicates production of autoantibodies
Yes either a rheumatologist or neurologist
No, fibromyalgia is just a catch all for pain
No not at all
