Hi all, this is my first post ever to any type of forum. I was diagnosed with APS in July 2015, sort of by accident. My primary physician was VERY thorough and tested for a bunch of stuff during my yearly physical. Two clotting factors came back high so I was referred to a Hemotologist. After having the blood work done 12 weeks apart, I was diagnosed with APS. My Hemotologist prescribed a daily dose of 81mg aspirin. I should mention that I also have an anxiety disorder with panic attacks so of course I have a tendency to worry that I have clots. I should mention that I have NEVER had a clotting event ( PE or DVT) nor have I ever had a miscarriage. So I guess my question is, how many of us out there have this diagnosis but never have a clot?? Perhaps I should mention also that I am 35, female and a smoker....I know, I know, I need to quit! Any info would be great!
