So I did talk to the doctor on Monday. However, it only happened following much confusion but whatever. We had a very long talk (40 minutes), got the air cleared, although she was extremely apologetic so I didn't have to say much. She kept going on and on about how awful she felt. She explained the communication breakdown and we talked about the lab results. Discovered that the last ANA test (2011) was also mild positive but dermatologist interpreted it as negative. This ANA shows the very same numbers but my doctor and the rheumatologist interpret is as positive. So, bottom line is that probably nothing significant has changed healthwise. I went today for more blood work for rheumatologist and will see the rheumatologist Friday morning at 11:00. Hopefully, I can get some answers and we can figure this out.
I've worked out Monday and Tuesday; so far no chest pain on either side.
