A while ago I had two positive beta2glycoprotein results 13 weeks apart. Even though I had symptoms of Hughes as well I was told that I did not have Hughes and nothing has been done since. Out of the blue I had a letter for an echocardiogram, which I knew nothing about and still have not been told anything. I need some advice and hope you can help.
The past couple of months I have had a few episodes of upper chest pain radiating down my arms. Last Sunday it was quite bad and even when the pain went my heart seemed to be doing somersaults. I got a taxi to A&E and was admitted to the MAU where I was on a heart monitor until Monday. I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and put on warfarin.
Could this be linked with Hughes? My INR in hospital was 1.2 and I have been told my INR should be 2-3 now and have yet to have this checked. I a m taking 3mg warfarin daily. I have no follow up and saw no cardiologist.
I would be grateful for any help and advice.
