Hi, ive seen this question being asked on here before but with no definitive answers.
I suffered two minor strokes feb 2012 due to 3 fairly large blood clots on the brain. I was extemely lucky as i did not suffer loss of movement or speech, longterm suffer with poor short term memory and getting words out.
In october of the same year i was diagnosed with LAS and put on blood thinners (warfarin) for life. All that was said was i needed to stay in range and was given heparin injections to be taken if my inr fell below 2. I asked the registrar if there were any support groups and she said no.
In recent months, due to work and family stress, i have felt increasingly unwell, heavy head,short tempered, emotional, headaches and joint pain (ive always had a bit of joint pain). I was admitted to a&e and they did a series of physical stroke tests, was told i was fine and sent me home. I feel at a loss and would really like to know if LAS is hughes syndrome? As it does say on the hughes website LAS and other names are used by clinicians instead of hughes syndrome? Many thanks
