Patient :I am a 28 year old female. My husband and I are trying to conceive. I had my first child 4 years ago. I have had multiple sclerosis for 11 years. My first pregnancy was perfect. Over the last 1-2 years, I've experienced new symptoms ( joint pain in all joints, migraines, ulcers in my mouth, frequent near daily fevers up to 100). I have seen a rheumatologist who tested for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. The only abnormal lab I have is a positive ANA at 1:320 speckled pattern. Last week I miscarried for the first time at 7 weeks. Concerned I could have another autoimmune disorder and can I do anything to prevent another miscarriage?
