I’ve have had high platelets for the past 20 years and have been living with primary Addison’s and hypothyroid for the past 27 years. I literally never feel good. I’ve been seeing a hematologist and she decided to run an ANA on me. CRP 9.7 ANA Ab screen POSITIVE ANA Titer <1:40 ANA pattern none detected DNA (ds) Ab, Crithidia IFA POSITIVE DNA (AB) (DS) Crithidia Titer 1:40, Titer H (<1:10) Rheumatoid factor 14 SM Antibody negative SM/RNP Antibody negative Sjogren’s Antibody SS-A 4.1 POSITIVE Sjogren’s Antibody SS-B negative SCL negative
I know I definitely will be diagnosed with Sjogren’s, my mouth is dry and peeling with inflamed gums.(can lupus cause the same mouth symptoms?). I have noticed last year when I was in the sun a lot I had an uncontrolled itchy rash on my arms. Can high platelets also indicate lupus? I appreciate any feedback on my current blood work. Do you think I might have lupus? Thank you!
