My daughter has had two positive lupus anticoagulant tests, followed by a negative one - lots of symptoms but fortunately no confirmed clots. Although GP was happy to dismiss the question of APS, on the advice of the fabulous folk on this website we have made an appointment to see Prof Hughes next month. But I have a couple of questions: firstly, I have put her on low dose asprin "just in case" - is this sensible or an over-reaction? Secondly, and more importantly, she has had very mild asthma in the past but for the past month she keeps getting really rapid onset feeling that her lungs are closing up - it comes on intensely over a couple of minutes, and she finds it hard to talk. Salbutemol helps but doesn't completely make it go away. She has upped her preventer but it is happening 2-3 times a day. I am assuming that if it was anything to do with APS then it would not fluctuate or improve at all. We are due to see the GP but, although he is lovely, he definitely looks for horses not zebras, and I would appreciate your thoughts on whether I should push for further assessment?
Thanks in advance - you guys fantastic and this website has been my salvation!
