I'm 42 yo, 360 pounds
Due to a couple years with joint pain which I thought was gout -I normally have uric acid above 8- I took a blood test
ANA positive 1.27 and above 1.25 is potivie
LE cells positive
Protein c reactive 3.2
Sedimentation rate 73, normal is 20
All other values including remathologic factor in range, except uric acide 8.
At the moment of the test I had knee pain, elbow pain and sinusitis
Do I have an autoinmune disorder?, can gout cause those values? I dont have fever, rash, fatigue or other symptom, just joint pain sometimes and lasts a couple weeks. I usually take colchicine for them
I'm a bit scared because the ANA positve etc.
