Hi I have lupus and aps and at the moment am having real problems with my memory.
I e recently been changed from aspirin to clopidogrel to see if it helps.
This morning I've been to the supermarket just to get a few bits and icons out so stressed with brain ache! I can't do a full weekly shop because of pain and this memory thing but mainly the pain so have it delivered.
Went this morning for about 6 items on a list ( I'm 37 years old btw) and came out with a bad headache and brain ache from having to think so hard. It's hard to explain but it's like my brain just isn't registering right I'm looking at the list over and over and can't seem to process it. I seem to hang around in the shop for ages I'm sure people must think I'm casing the joint or something!!
Then I get to the till and she asks if I have my nectar card ( store/points card) and I just look at my purse blankly for what seems like ages, it just doesn't seem to register. I'm do frustrated by this 30 minute trip to the shop.
The rheumatologist suggested daily heparin if clopidogrel doesn't help but am reluctant to do this had it thru my pregnancys and hated it.
Is this normal for aps? I know it's not anything serious ie stroke as had normal mri few wks ago and its ongoing not just a one off, just driving me mad!
Sorry but if a long one! It's so hard to explain it!
