My husband and I were having a discussion about how likely it is that I will get dementia/Alzheimer's due to having Hughes, can anyone help me out here, are we more likely to get it because we get brain fog/memory issues or is it a completely different thing! He thinks because I have an auto immune condition then I am more likely to get it, is he right? I say that it is different and just because I have problems with words/brain fog etc that I am not necessarily a higher risk than anyone else.
Incidentally my mother had a heart attack at 70 and then went on to have TIA's she was then diagnosed with vascular dementia. I think she also had Hughes but was never diagnosed until I saw on hospital records recently that she was suffering from antiphospholipid syndrome! (She had a PE years ago and then recently after a fall got a DVT, she is now on Warfarin also)
