An "ana" is a blood test used to screen a person for the possibility of several autoimmune diseases.

No blood test is perfect, and getting to a diagnosis is usually much more complex than drawing blood and looking at a number ...Read more

The diagnosis is actually based on clinical findings, and the lab testing is generally 'supportive'. Since you're Western blot is negative, then it's very unlikely you have Lyme. There are other diseases that could cause 'Lyme-like' symptoms -and good to get evaluated ...Read more

ANA means nothing apart from the clinical picture. Best wishes. ...Read more
