As you know from previous threads I am seeing Dr Situnayake next Wednesday and I just wondered in everyone's experience what is likely to happen next?
I have had one positive test for Lupus anticoagulant. Normal test for cardiolipin and not had the third test yet.
My symptoms before my 'funny turn' at work were slight balance issues and occasional tinnitus but this can also be attributed to my thyroid condition as I understand it.
Since being put on clopidogrel my dizziness has become worse so I don't know if that is the treatment or the condition.
Just wondering what route Dr Situnayake will take with tests? I have had two healthy pregnancies one of which was four years ago, had gestational diabetes but was controlled with diet and no complications.
Since my funny turn which followed a high carb meal (having not eaten carbs for about six month) I have had a few post prandial issues and it seems I have something called reactive hypoglycaemia which is where my body reacts to carbs and or sugar by spiking and then dropping.
My symptoms when I have felt unwell are very consistent with
Hypoglycaemia, including cold extremeties, shivering, a numb cheekbone which resolves when sugar levels stabilise and
Almost fainting after a high carb meal following a sudden drop in blood pressure. I also have postular hypotension.
I am so confused right now as I don't know whether I have a blood glucose disorder and they have discovered my aps antibodies as a side issue or whether my main issue is APS and I had a TIA as opposed to hypoglycaemia.
On the day of the funny turn at work the oddness started as soon as I had finished eating and was elevated heart rate stuttering for a couple of mins but not noticed by the person I was talking to, felt a little queazy, no headache but got very warm and had to sit by window and felr better after eating a biscuit. My gut feeling is hypoglycaemia but now I'm not so sure.
Any help is very gratefully received. Thank goodness for this forum.
