As I've previously posted, I have APS and Factor V Leiden. I was diagnosed about one and a half years ago after a history of DVT several times in my leg. I started warfarin and lovenox Sept 2013, and am now on Warfarin for life. I have been self testing since Nov. 2014
In the past 2 1/2 years I have had the following all in my right leg and foot:
Plantar fasciitis, torn plantar fascia tendon in foot, torn perineal tendon in my ankle, stress reaction fracture in my tibia, 3 DVT at the same time in gastrocnemius veins in leg, (15 years ago DVT in popliteal vein in leg) and now I was just diagnosed with a stress fracture in my 3rd metatarsil. These all have happened without any known cause. I broke my 5th metatarsil prior to this twice, but each time there was a cause--a fall. I've had 7 foot x-rays, 5 MRI's of foot, ankle, and leg, 7 ultra sounds of leg, 8 cortisone shots, Physical therapy, Tens unit treatments, etc. And no doctor seems to make a connection with any of this and why it all has been happening in my right leg and foot.
It is very frustrating, because I am in constant pain and have a problem walking most of the time. I am now in a boot until the fracture heals, and the orthopedist said this may not help but he is afraid to restrict movement of my foot and ankle with a more rigid appliance for fear of getting blood clots. I also had to stop driving until the fracture heals.
Does anyone know of a connection with APS, and Factor V Leiden and weakness in bones and tendons of the leg? Or a connection with warfarin and these problems?
