Hi, under a consultant at the centre. Positive bloods and pre-diagnosed APS and ?SLE. Bloods say definately APS and possible SLE, symptoms suggest both. And yet dr said bloods were inconclusive, advised me to come off warfarin and would not take case history or listen to symptoms. Have I been victim to streamlining (Dr left the clinic today and several have gone from there recently, plus apparently it is moving to Guys in a couple of months), or is he right that these conditions are not what is making me ill? I am concerned that in discharging me back to my GP I will be ordered off the warfarin (which has given some improvement and I suffer more when my INR falls). I am ill and my bloods confirm this. And I know there are people with sero-negative Hughes, but I am +ANA, +LA, out of range DVVT, APTT, ACL IgM AND have had a stroke at 31, several TIAs, miscarriages and prem babies, history of severe migrainbe, visual disturbances, ?nephritis, hypothyroidism etc etc. I am really concerned now that I will have more events if he is discharging me particularly if I am made to come off warfarin, and upset that it may be due to numbers or funding rather than my clinical need
