I have an Ana of 1:128 titer speckled pattern. Is this a high titer?

I had a biopsy done on my foot that came back as medium sized vessel vasculitis. Can you please advise what it might all mean. Thanks

How safe is prednisone with a history of glaucoma and cataracts?

I can no longer take NSAIDS because of potential renal disease and prednisone has been suggested as a replacement (5 mg/day) for my achy joints. Despite having peripheral iridotomies done to both eyes to prevent angle closure glaucoma, I developed an acute attack in one eye. The glaucoma made the cataract worse and it was removed.

I am 22 yrs old and was just diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis.

It only affects my knees and primarily just my right knee. I started having problems with knee pain when I was 13. At 14 I dislocated my right patella. Dr's were unable to reduce my patella, so I ended up in emergency surgery to put it back in place. Before this I had general pain in both knees.
