Hi all, I was diagnosed with APS in January and am on warfarin now. My INR rarely gets above 2 and I've been haranguing the blood clinic to make it higher. I still have all the symptoms I had before. Some of you may remember I posted about two "events" last month which I thought were TIAs. I was sent to the stroke referral unit, who put me through another MRI. The specialist later phoned me to say there was an irregularity in one of the arteries and that he was sending the scan for analysis. Just had a call to tell me that King's College Hospital have looked at it and found an aneurysm (incidental basilar artery aneurysm) and I have an appointment to go and see them. They are not going to do anything about it.
Well obviously I looked it up online and risks for rupture include anti-coagulation! This makes me doubt whether I can increase the warfarin doseage, or even if they'll let me stay on it. Does anyone have similar experience? What was done about it? Or do I just continue feeling like a ticking time-bomb?!
Thanks everyone x
