Do not know how long I have had this. I did have a few early miscarriages in the first 2 months of my pregnancies. Almost miscarried my oldest son in the first three weeks of pregnancy and had pre-eclampsia during my pregnancy with him. He is now 29 years old. My blood pressure was high with both of my pregnancies. I have another son 25 years old. I am now 60 years old and I was told to take an aspirin everyday for the rest of my life and that at some point I would have a blood clot occur to my lungs, heart, or brain. In 1992 I thought I had MS because my legs would become numb at night in bed and I would have a numbness and tingling sensation when I exercised. But, it was not MS. Did not know then it could be related to APS. I live in Texas (Austin - San Antonio Area). I am searching for an APS specialist. Would anyone know of one in this area? The Doctors I see do not seem to have a lot of experience with APS because they are constantly referring to the internet when I asked them questions. Also, I would like to know from those of you who were diagnosed with Primary APS, who have not had a major blood clot at the time of diagnosis, what to expect as time moves on and if there are any other treatments other than aspirin? I am taking the supplements curcumin, resveratrol, and Omega 3.
I have my MPH and I am interested in any research that is being conducted on APS. APS had not been discovered at the time I was a student.
