Hello I have just discovered this forum and am hoping for the benefit of others' experience.
I have has APS for 12 years, which was discovered after a DVT in my arm when I was 22. I take 75mg aspirin and hydroxychloroquine to manage symptoms. My symptoms have been stable for 5 years, but in the last 18 months my antiphospholipid antibodies have been increasing, although not to very high levels.
Two days ago I was out for coffee and had a sudden and VERY severe pain in my head, and one side of my face went numb and I lost my peripheral vision in one eye. This lasted less than 5 minutes, the numbness took about an hour to wear off. I though I was having a stroke. To cut a long story short, I went to hospital and had a CT scan and D-Dimer blood test, which were both negative. So I was discharged and told it was probably a migraine. I do suffer from migraines, but NEVER like this and always on the other side of my head.
I'm not sure why but I feel really worried about this. It just didn't feel like a migraine to me. Anyone experienced similar? Would be grateful for any advice! Thanks, Katrina
