Up back pain for 1 yr. Right flank burning. Elev sed rate. Ana + spec 1:640. Lupus panel neg. Cbc ok. Metabolic panel ok. Serum protein ok. Urine ok?

Get renal studies. This might be nonspecific back muscle pain due to your being overweight or possible something more serious, like herniated disc with nerve compression or possible kidney issue, although kidney/ureter pain would likely be lower. You do have "burning" right flank which still can be kidney involvement. It might be a good idea to see your doctor to get your labs looked at, and an exam to find out.

Multifactorial. You have numerous complaints without a major focus beyond back and right flank pain. The obvious question is how much of this is organic, in the sense that you have some primary medical illness, and how much is due to underlying psychological problems with somaticization. Suggest finding an excellent general internist and a clinical psychologist and following their leads. Read more...
ANAs not marker for. Anas not markers for cancer. Of course, any undefined pain could be ca, but at your age very unlikely. Your systemic lupus panel does exonerate you from likely connective tissue disease, and your other tests are ok, except for the esr. I would have my pcp get a crp. Esrs in my opinion should rarely be done. If CRP elevated, probably inflammation somewhere, the more likely cause for pain! Read more...

Yes. Mri is fine but be prepared for normal results. An elevated sed rate and ANA may indicate an inflammatory process in the body. A thorough work up would include hormone evaluation, sleep patterns, infection/immune system testing as well as nutrition review. These presentations can be frustrating so find a doctor that will take the time to listen and evaluate. Read more...

Mid upper back pain for months right flank sore. Lupus panel neg. Ana positive 1;640 w/spec pat. Sed rate elevated. Serum protein normal. Any ideas?

Too many tests? Your ANA is strongly positive, but despite that, it is a non-specific finding, and so is the elevated esr. These findings may not have anything to do with your complaints of back and flank pain. The provider(s) that ordered these tests will have to try and come up with a clinically plausible explanation.

Ana+w/speck pat. 1:640. Sed rate elevated CRP ok. Cbc and metabolic and urine ok. Up back pain. Fatigue. Right flank pain. Lupus panel negatiive.?

Not related to SLE. I'm certain that this ANA is related to your symptoms. You have an elevated sedimentation rate, but there's two things you need to realize. At age 73 you can have a positive ama due to autoimmunity of aging. As we get older our normal level for the sedimentation rate also increases. A simple formula is half your age and for a woman +10. Thus for you your normal sedimentation rate could be 45. Your physician needs to evaluate these issues also. Read more...
Not lupus! The elevated sed rate is less important than a normal crp. The ANA is not important, since it appears to be false positive. Many things can increase the esr, including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, female hormones:all increase serum fibrinogen! also, connective tissue diseases rarely cause back pain. I believe you have a back problem unrelated to these tests. See someone in rheumatology or ortho! Read more...

Is it safe to dismiss a positive ANA speckled with a titer of 1:640 if CBC ok. Lupus panel negative. Metabolic ok. Urine ok. Serum protein ok?

Yes and no. We have a saying in pathology / lab medicine, "treat the person, not the labs." plenty of healthy folks have medium-titer speckled ana's. The real question is, "do we want to treat you for lupus or whatever, with all the unpleasantness that this involves?" i think the answer is "no" based on what you're shared if your physician agrees. Remember the ANA should new symptoms develop. Good question. Read more...
