I have SLE, Sjögren's and Hughes syndrome and mild Raynauds syndrome. My mother had multiple sclerosis and our son has palindromic rheumatism. Think you could say that our family has had its fair share of auto-immune diseases!
Our 21 year old daughter has recently been getting increasingly severe migraines, the most recent one causing problems with her vision and difficulty speaking. She also said she had tingling and numbness in her fingers on both sides. I suspected a possible TIA but our locum GP just said it was a migraine. Is it worth asking for her to be tested for anti-phospholipid syndrome and in the UK, can a GP request this test or would she have to be referred to a consultant?
Many thanks for any help/advice you can give.
