Hi, Mary kindly told me about this group. I have no idea if I have Hughes but am keen to get it checked out in case it explains my 2 yr + constant headache and migraines, joint /muscle pain, dizziness/vertigo, poor circulation with feet that often go purple, tingling/numbness in hands, brain fog, fatigue.
I have not had either a clot or miscarriage (can you acquire this at any point ie post pregnancy?). But have a family history that might be relevant with my mother having suffered migraines followed by a brain haemorrhage in late 40s and a stroke early 50s. Her headaches appear resolved since she was put on blood thinners. She is also hypothyroid (I am borderline but non responsive to mess).
Anyway I going to try to see if neuro will test me but I am concerned that some sites say you need to have had a clot or miscarriage , as well as antibodies, to be positive ?
Thanks a lot
