Hi everyone it's been a long time since I have been on here. I was told I had APS about 30 years ago. And finally after seeing Dr. after Dr. no one would confirm that I had Lupus. I went to the Lupus Center at West Penn hospital in Pittsburgh, PA and found a Hematologist that did blood work 12 weeks apart so he could see and compare them, and then a Rheumatoligst did the same blood work about 6 weeks later and it showed that I DO have Lupus along with APS BUT IT TOOK ABOUT 30 YEARS!!!! I am still on Warfrain and now on predisone and I'm still getting ''nogules" or bumps on my skin they are itchy, then they turn black and blue with a nut size bump that is really painful, but the predisone has helped very much.
It;s been a long journey but finally got some answers and found Drs. that I like and are very helpful.
