I wasn't aware APS could be hereditary, I was diagnosed in October after many tests after having a stroke in July 2015 which I find can happen when not picked up much earlier. I'm taking warfarin, and seem to have got the dosage right at long last. I'm so pleased to have found this site as its not been easy looking/asking for information on APS

Very kind of you I love to run, not fast but I get to the finish, after my stroke I never thought I would be able to again.

Hi there and welcome, where are you located? The disease does seem to run in a pattern in some families but often other autoimmune diseases are there among relatives also. MaryF

I'm in the UK in Yorkshire, this forum is quite reassuring in some aspects and makes APS quite "the norm" for us who have to deal with this syndrome

Love your photo! And I agree with the other posts, you are beautiful!

My hematologist told me it can be acquired through a mutation, or it can be hereditary. I don't know which I am but sometimes have a laugh over being a mutant :-)
