Hi, I went to the doctor a few days after I waking up with numbness to my entire right side which diminished to just my right hand. I was also there for yearly check up. He thought he might check for Lupus or MS (because of numbness) and wanted a ANA blood test with the results of anatiter 1:320 Nucleolar.
2 years ago I had the same numbness but on my left side...within weeks all numbness went away so it was believed to have been caused by over extension of arm/nerves resulting in nerve damage. The day before this time on my right side, I was lifting a very heavy object that again my neck and arm was stretched beyond what it should have been. I believe that I have peripheral Neuropathy from injury.
I have no symptoms for Lupus or MS (that I know of) and no other symptoms of Polymyositis or Scleroderma that I have read other than that of this blood work result.
Is ANA titer 1:320 Pattern Nucleolar bad? Does it have symptoms associated with nerve numbness associated with injury?
