When I was pregnant with my second child I was admitted to hospital twice towards the end of my pregnancy with chest pain. I was found to have a ruptured sinus of valslava and pericarditis. Then when my baby was 9 months old I suffered multiple pulmonary embolisms. Following this I was sent to a private hospital to see a heart specialist who indicated that I may have an autoimmune disease following these symptoms and also the fact that i was not recovering from the embolisms as expected. I was in a flare of Lupus and could not walk or even hold my baby due to the pain. I am now on Warfarin for life but told that I am not suffering from Hughes but yet have an INR range of 2.5 - 3.5. The hematologist wants my INR above 3. I am confused as they never tested me for it as I would have to have come off my Warfarin for this test yet I remain L/L on this medication alongside other Lupus medication. Can anyone help me with this as I feel I have all the symptoms of Hughes when my INR is not in range?
