I have APS n arthritis that was very manageable until this winter when hip and back pain started occasionally. I started having episodes ?flares where I feel like my body is under attack and I feel pain all over. It almost feels like flu symptoms. I'm on plaquenil n warfarin. I was diagnosed 3 yrs ago after a stroke. I have a rheumatologist in NYC.where I live. She's a lupus specialist but Im thinking of going to see another specialist here because I think my APS has reached another level. Has anyone else gotten these types of "flares" with APS?
