Hi DoctorI was tested ANA positive with 1.320 titer nucleolar pattern. However, anti dsdna and ena panel came back negative. I also have an elevated esr of 34 . Recently, I have been treated with antibiotics for h pylori infection after upper and lower endoscopy. Doctor told me nothing to worry about but I’m really worried that I may have an autoimmune disease due to fatigue, acid reflux and sensitivity to light. please advise. thank you
