I have cfs & am hypothyroid. Recently fingertips on left hand sporadically get tight&wrinkly but not in water. I had a + ANA 160 nucleolar. Harmless?
Yes.: First if hypothyroidsim was detected, then you are on meds and no longer hypothyoid. An ANA is found in 5% of the population, and is usually false positive. But you have an autimmine disease already: low thyroid, usually the result of hashimoto's thyroiditis. Cfs is so non-specific, there is frequently no cause found, except poor sleep. You ANA needs to be reflexed to see if it is important. ...Read more
