Have not seen the Rheumatologist yet for followup, but stopped by the lab and test results yesterday.

The drs. office called and said I had abnormal labs and needed to followup.

They ran a Myositis Antibody Panel and everything read negative except for a weak positive on the PM/SCL.

From what I've read online the rate of false positives are very slim.

I am assuming that the weak negative means I have sclerodema, polymyositis or an overlap of both.

I'd appreciate any feedback on this.

As if the Lyme diagnosis isn't overwhelming enough, now this.

Not to worry...

There are MANY on www.roadback.org with autoimmune disease induced by lyme. With appropriate lyme/co treatment they are in remission from scleroderma and other autoimmune disease.

Was your SCL-70 or Anti-centromere a weak positive?

I had a myositis antibody panel drawn and all were negative except a weak positive for PM/SCL (polymositis/sclerodema).

I do not see an anti-centromere on the lab results.

Thanks.
