I finally was able to get my second LA test and I now have had 2 positive results 12 weeks apart.
The rheumatologist called me and is putting me on 81mg daily aspirin and said to make sure to get up every 20 minutes and move around on long trips. I asked about birth control and she said I should talk to my OBGYN to discuss possibly switching to avoid further risk for stroke.
She said if I ever want to have children, if the aspirin isn't enough to prevent miscarriages that they may put me on additional blood thinners. This worries me as I am 30 years old and my husband and I are talking about the possibility of children in the next couple years.
She said not to smoke (which I don't any way).
Other than that she didn't say much else but emailed me a lot of information about the disease.
Is there anything else I should have asked her? Or is there anything else I should be doing? Am I supposed to get regular blood tests now?
By the way, this is all by complete chance that I found out I have this; I originally was going in due to extreme pain in my hips, pelvis, legs and back (going on for 3 years) so they just ran a ton of blood tests. But she says this would not be causing my pain and thinks that is because of fibromyalgia.
Thanks for any and all advice.
