I have APS and have been on Warfarin now for 9 years. I managed to become a really good ultra-distance runner in 2010, though have been struggling with injury ever since.
I am wondering if other fit APS sufferers seem seem to 'repair slower'? And have more rheumatoid issues than the general athlete population?
I would be very interested to hear about the experience of other people with APS/Hughes Syndrome who manage to compete in endurance and ultra endurance sports.
I have always considered my body to have what I termed for years (s**t constitution). Susceptible to muscle lumpiness, piriformis inflammation/tightness and bone issues. My heal time seem to be much slower than the 'generally accepted recovery duration' for that particular injury. A slight niggle can take many months to resolve or get worse. Any deep tissue physio/massage and stretching seems worsen and stiffen the suspect area more. I seem to be in a constant state of injury to some extent. Even with time off, I tend to just get stiffer and this rarely resolves the issue.
I'm totally frustrated and need some advice.
