i havent had a diagnosis but i am going to see my doctor next week as i think i may need to be tested for this condition.
I have had 4 miscarriages and then lost our son Thomas when we were 5 days overdue, he was stillborn in 2006. I remember having lots of blood tests and then having to have another one a second time, but the sample got lost or something so i never got the result. i remember when i had it done (before it got lost) the consultant saying the chances were that the next result was likely to be normal.
Anyway i saw this charity come up on facebook and clicked to see what it was, and when i saw some of the symptoms of Hughes i felt like something really clicked. recurrent miscarriage, stillbirth. my dad died from an autoimmine disease too and i understand there is a hereditary link.
Do you think this blood test i had and then had to have repeated was for Hughes? i know i never got the second result as it was lost but if i had to have it a second time, would the first one have been positive? i know this is clutching at straws from over 10 years ago.
im not sure if i should go and see the doctor, i have since had 2 boys (i was given aspirin because of my stillbirth and they were both born safely) so dont want to have any more children, but i do want to know if i have increased risks of things like stroke and blood clots.
Im sorry if this post if a bit random, i know i dont really 'belong' but i do wonder if i should go and see my doctor.
thank you for reading,
