I have a appointment with a Rheumatologist this week. I was diagnosed with APS 2 years ago and am on 4 mg of Coumadin and a ASA 81 mg. My symptoms seem to be more nervous system related . Just wanted to see if any one had these symptoms before seeing the rheumatologist and sounding like I've lost my mind. Nerve endings going crazy on the scalp, facial tingling and numbness, every day my legs from the knee down are so heavy I can barely lift them, tightness in the back of my legs, deep muscle pain in my deltoid muscles of my arm for about 3 months. These are symptoms I have everyday. I just wonder if these are APS symptoms are should I be looking for another diagnosis also. Some of the symptoms are difficult to explain to someone who hasn't had them. I believe I read somewhere in a post that it is possible to have nerve type symptoms instead of the blood clots. I do have 4 cardiac stents but unsure if this was related to APS or bad genes, was before the APS diagnosis. Have had 1 TIA.
