  • Hi if this has got worse please do check in with the GP or ring up your main consultant to check your medication and INR, also you need to look at your Thyroid, also D, B12 and Iron, to check what is going on. So often we end up with a thyroid problem and if not treated will cause terrible brain fog! MaryF

  • I don't think iv ever had my thyroid done will let you know wot he say just feel a bit silly some time like it's not happening to me x

  • The trio of disease is Hughes Syndrome, SJogrens and Thyroid, unfortunately the TSH is very unreliable for Thyroid and patients do at times get wrongly labelled as 'Fibro'. As said above, list the things you want looked at including Vit D, B12, and Iron, as well as you usual Hughes Syndrome/APS things, plus the Thyroid Panel, get somebody you really trust to be your patient advocate and help you, it is important that you feel better than you do. Best of luck. MaryF

  • Please read through this also and see if it rings any bells with you:



  • Yes looked at all that and most of it fits me x

  • Also remember it is not uncommon to have a real problem with 'gluten' regarding your gut, you do not have to have full Coeliac Disease to have a problem with it. MaryF

  • Hi Lesley,

    Sorry you feel so bad at the moment! Are you going for your second operation before or after Cristmas? I wish you had a selftesting machine as it can be difficult to keep your INR on 3.5 when you have problems with your stomach also.

    I have felt like that. My memory sometimes was so bad that I did not know if my parents were dead or not. At the same time I could have a talk with a friend and she did not notice anything wrong with me. It took almost 1 hour before I could remember and was myself or almost anyway. It was like I was living in two realities during that hour. This happened before i started Warfarin. When I am properly anticoagulated it does not happen any more.

    Take care and I hope you feel better soon. See a doctor and cheque your INR also.


  • Had both my operations now keratin and been back to INR clinic this morning my INR is 3.9 don't go back till the 11 Jan and that's the day I go to hospital about my injection in my hip just trying to sort out if they to stop my warfin agine first they all seem to be passing the book but just waiting for them to phone me back xx

  • Good that the operations are over and INR in right level also.

    Take all help you can get now these days!!

    Gentle good wishes to you from Kerstin

  • They phoned me back and cancel it on the 11th now till they talk to the doctor who is doing the injection so just have to wait for a phone call x

  • I think you will find that many of us have brain gof (and it can affect spelling by the look of it!) at times, and to varying degrees. I think I;ve heard some say that getting their INR right helps- but you can tell from my answer that I am suffering from ita little at present. Not joking either

  • I know it can some time but never been this bad I dis can not spell it but if you know wot I mean lol my INR is 3.9 same just had it done this morning x

  • Being forgetful is part of APS and so is the fog, but by all means I think you should mention this to your doctor. If you don't mind me saying, I understand the jist of what you are trying to say, but what is actually written here is a little "off". This happened to me early on when I was first diagnosed. When I'd go back and re read things that I wrote in emails to my family or friends, it didn't make sense.

  • My kids and people say I never make any sense some time I don't look at wot I am putting but I always put thinks down how I say it sorry it's bad some times but I guess that's just me x
