Hey I want to ask my doc for some tests to rule out auto-immune
I am dx with Sjogrens already, had positive antibody test anti-la ssb

I was thinking myathenia gravis and wondering what tests are best for that and ones that could relate to extreme reactivity to many foods and chemicals and pain flares.......I don't want to just do ANA or sed rate as those historically haven't shown much for me

but curious if others have had any panels of antibody tests they recommend that insurance pays for and can get done thru mainstream medicine

thanks....I am curious too if there are certain Auto-immune/antibody tests that people think those with CFS/ME should try to get to rule things out
