This is my first post here, I have had MS symptoms for about 20 years, it's 10 years since I was diagnosed with MS and it's now progressive affecting mainly my legs, but I do have other symptoms.
The reason for this post is the fact that I was prescribed anti-coagulants for a blood clot in my leg a fortnight ago and I immediately found an improvement in my symptoms. It has now levelled off, but there is still a gain in energy, flexibility and mobility with less fatigue.
I posted on the MS Society asking if it's normal for blood thinning meds to improve MS symptoms and a very helpful member (Mully) suggested I look into the possibility that I may have Hughes Syndrome as normally MS wouldn't respond like this.
Is it possible to be tested for Hughes whilst taking these meds?
It's Rivaroxaban that I'll be taking for the next five and a half months.
I haven't been to see my GP yet asking about the possibility of getting tested, I did see a practice nurse the other day about my blood pressure but she had never heard of Hughes Syndrome.
Does anyone have some advice about the best way to proceed.
