I posted on here a few weeks, just a few days after my diagnosis. I really appreciated everyone's detailed responses and support! I go some labwork back a few days ago, and even though I have tried to contact both my Rheumy and Primary doctor I haven't had success. Some of my results (and physical pain that I think is related to them) is concerning me, so I was wondering if anyone had any insight.
1.) So, my main concern is with my Urinalysis results, so I'm writing about them first. My other labs and the ones I have questions about will be below it. But I don't understand my Urinalysis results at all, and have been having chronic pain in the bladder area, and increasing numbers for the abnormal items despite two courses of antibiotics in the last 2 months. After my last course, my primary care doctor told me he didn't want me on anymore yet because he thinks it might not be an infection, but something else. He referred me to the Rheumy. But pain is getting much much worse. Could this have to with my kidneys? I really have no idea how to interpret. Here are the results (only abnormal):
-pH: 5 (barely low, slightly acidic)
-Calcium Oxalate 4+
-Leukocyte Esterase 1+
2.) So- my abnormal blood labs I pretty much understand, actually:
-Positive ANA, Titer: 1:320
-Speckled ANA pattern
-Positive SSA RO 52 (ENA): 71
-High MPV: 11.5 (DONT KNOW WHAT THIS ONE MEANS?)
-Low Absolute Eosinophils: 0 (DON't KNOW WHAT THIS ONE MEANS?)
Any insight would be appreciated!
