My ANA levels are high i took the lupus test it was at a 5 but i still have pains , tingling, numbness in hands, feet, arms, legs. Told me  fibromyalga

Question?: I am not sure what you are asking. The ANA is a screening test for lupus but can be seen in numerous other diseases and in people who have no disease. I assume the lupus test you mention is a dna antibody. This test does not have to positive to have lupus. Finally, about 30% of lupus patients also have fibromyalgia. See a rheumatologist if you have not done so already. ...Read more

For 2-3 weeks i've had neck, shoulders, and back pains. Loss of appetite.  Fatigue. Hand numbness and tingling. Depression.  What causes these symptom?

Rule out med illness: You should first get a physicalexam to rule out any medical illness that might be contributing to how you're feeling. There are various illnesses such as vitamin deficiencies thyroid disease and sleep apnea that can cause what you're feeling. Lyme's disease is another possibility. Depression makes you feel very tired and fatigued both physically and mentally. You can develop aches and pains in virtually any part of your body. With depression you feel helpless hopeless worthless and guilty. Energy and motivation are low. There is a distinct lack of ability to enjoy things and a tendency to withdraw socially. You can either have an increased or decreased appetite and insomnia or increased sleepiness. You can also have both. If you are feeling this way please see your doctor, then a therapist, and if necessary a psychiatrist for medication management. Do not forget to watch your diet, exercise, and seek out other ways of treating your depression from an alternative medicine or complementary medicine point of view. Yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and finding your spiritual center can all be important ways to overcome depression. ...Read more

I had Ant. cerv. discectomy in 2012. Pain and grinding sound in neck , fingers turn blue, numbness in hands and leg, pain in back going to left leg. ?

Something else: symptoms in legs have nothing to do with your neck. the grinding is consistant most likely with bony scar tissue from the surgery, which is not a reason for repeat surgery. You need nerve studies to see if you have an underlying nerve disease (neuropathy). I would see a neurologist ...Read more
