Ana normal

If ANA is negative than go for anti double stranded DNA test which is more reliable than ANA .

What can she do in the meantime ? Feeling very sick she's getting very depressed because she says the doctors are not believing that she feels very sick
Expert:  dr abid replied 1 year ago.

As she has symptoms suggestive of Autoimmune disease , ideally she should consult Rheumatologist .

No medication except some specific things that needed once diagnosed is the steroids for active disease control , but this should be done after proper consultation and diagnosis .
