Hi
Sorry but your test means nothing you still can not tell which disease you have, I recommend Antinuclear Antibody Profile , specificity do anti-dsDNA to confirm connective tissue disease
In my opinion your medications are not related to your condition, please do the tests and tell me what you find, actually no need to worry yet As speckled pattern can mean 5 other disease
Good Luck

Connective tissue diseases are actually a group of medical diseasese it is any disease that has the connective tissues of the body as a primary target of pathology.
Many connective tissue diseases feature abnormal immune system activity with inflammation in tissues as a result of an immune system that is directed against one’s own body tissues (autoimmunity).
İt is not always a cause of death..it is a cause of limitation that can be lived with by taking meducations and physiotherapy if needed..
See a rheumatologist..

hi,
the results are rather inconclusive.
Need a detailed investigation profile including PCRNA,RA test,HLA B27,ANA.
It can be a rheumatoid arthritis or seronegative arthropathy.
Not always,it is life threatening.
There are means to control it from progressing to a severe degree.
Thanks
