As you can see below it could be an Arthritic problem .
Has she had in the last two years any antibiotic treatment .
If so what was the condition that caused the administration of the antibiotic-- what type antibiotic?
Anti-nuclear antibodies (ANAs, also known as anti-nuclear factor or ANF) are detected in a large group of autoimmune disorders. The presence of ANA is indicative of lupus erythematosus, though they also appear in some other auto-immune diseases such as Sjögren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune hepatitis, scleroderma and dermatomyositis, and various non-rheumatological conditions associated with tissue damage.
