The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

Positive ANA, Homogeneous, High Titer

    Back and forth, sometimes positive sometimes not. I meet the requirements for Lupus after almost 20 years of CFS/Fibro. Noone can tell me if I have Lupus or not.

    Wonder if a positive ANA is from Lyme?

    I have speckled, and quite high too - 1280, with ss/ra presence, so they suspect sjogrens, but I have 0 symptoms of sjogrens. What I think happens is that after a long-term infection (be it a virus such as EBV, retrovirus as XMRV, o bacterial infection, such as Lyme) system is confused. Infections can activate auto-immune system.
