MS Diagnosis, Courses, and Stages

Blood Tests!

  • By mmitchell49

    I am currently undergoing testing for MS but they also considered lupus due to having a positive ANA but all other lupus related tests came back negative. I do have a corpus callosum lesion so MS is a possibility. I was wondering if any of you had high total protein as mine keeps coming back elevated. Or any other off blood tests you had in your journey to diagnosis. Thanks!

    Hi @mmitchell49,

    Welcome. Finding an accurate diagnosis can be frustrating and time-consuming. I just wanted to answer your specific question about blood test results. I have MS and RA; never have my total protein results come back high. Rather they have sometimes come back low which probably reflected a poor diet at the time. Good luck with your search for answers.
