Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Kindly provide more information about your health problem. Are you having any joint pain, any swelling, any skin rash. This means that your Doctor says that the Test for Anti-dsDNA are not significantly positive. Not to worry. Whatever advise Rheumatology Doctor gives, do continue with that. You could be having non-specific arthritis or Reiter's disease. You can get tested for Chlamydia if advised. Drink plenty of water. Use condom which prevents from STD while having sex.
