Sticky Blood-Hughes Syndrome Support

Hello all

Hi im so glad i found this forum because i no no-one not even my GP who knows anything about this syndrome ive had it since about the age of 21 when i had my first DVT but wasnt diagnosed until the age of 38 after the loss of my 5th baby (i have been lucky and had 4 children though) all the things i suffer from now make sense its nice to meet likesyndromed people lol

Hello and welcome, where are you located? My current GP's were given several books and films by myself to wade through and most by Prof G Hughes, they soon got up to speed. MaryF

Yeah! This is such an informative forum! Glad that I too found this


Hi Amos1,I am sorry that you have had this syndrome from such a young age.I was in my fifties when I was diagnosed and find it quite disturbing that so many medical professionals do not take it very seriously! One GP I came across who had a little knowledge,struggled to believe that I had three children and no miscarriages prior to the onset! Having an illness which is so poorly understood can be very frustrating and makes the patient feel like a hypochondriac! I suppose that we are forced to be up to speed with our condition and it must seem rather obsessive
