I have recently tested positive for ANA and am waiting on a follow up with my GP. Wondering how to tell whether it is more likely to be Lupus or RA. These are some of my symptoms:exhaustion
joint pain worse in the AM, but stays with me all day.
sweaty feet and hands
loose stools/ diarrhea
extra weight in mid section and double chin
difficulty swallowing over a “lump” in throat, pills often get stuck
TSH low side of normal
RT3 and RT4 slightly low
AM cortisol high side of normal
-6 months of thyroid treatment with no improvement in symptoms
-5 months on anti-depressants with no change in symptoms
-ultrasound of thyroid showed small lump, supposed to re-do in a year to see if it has changed.
Dizzy when I bend over
Wake up in the night in cold sweats
