Have Any Of You Had An Indeterminate Result To A DNA DS Antibody Test?

Have Any Of You Had An Indeterminate Result To A DNA DS Antibody Test?

I have been tested for lupus and this test has shown indeterminate twice. So its not negative but in between. All my other lupus tests are normal. Could my rheumatoid arthritis be causing these antibodies?

I would think it could. But who knows? RA is a very strange and complicated disease. Never knew it could cause so many problems. Something happened to me last summer. I had lupus symptoms, negative results on lab, but come to find out the medication they have me on can cause false lupus symptoms. Crazy
