Hi there. Newbie here! I am trying to be my own advocate here and wanted to ask a question to those who are more familiar with this stuff. So. In 2014 I was having all kinds of issues controlling the symptoms of my multiple autoimmune diseases - Celiac, Hashimotos, Autoimmune Inflammatory Disease, Autoimmune Urticaria, Hypermobility Joint Syndrome, etc etc. I went to get treatment at the Mayo Clinic and things got better as all the doctors there communicate with one another and share records and treatment plans. I was doing better for awhile. Then this year started having foot pain and went to doc for that and no one could figure out what was goin on so was sent for an MRI. Mri says that I am suffering from Progressive Joint Disease. Likely Autoimmune related the doctor said. While that was going on I had to be on an OrthoScooter for a short time over the holidays and while out of town. Right around Christmas I started having severe pain in my calf. It was miserable!!!! I truly thought it was muscular and maybe referred pain even from my foot but my good friend convinced me to to the Emergency Room as she is a Nurse and suspected more was going on. She was right. I was diagnosed with DVT (multiple blood clots in the right leg. Several in the calf and one up in the main artery in my pelvis). I immediately was started on Xarelto. The scary thing is is that I dismissed it as muscular and wouldn't have gone to the ER without my friend insisting. I had NO redness, no swelling, not hot to the touch...just pain. Unrelenting, debilating pain! Anyway. After I was cleared to fly and flew home I was seen by a Hematologist. She ran a panel of genetic clotting type tests and all were negative EXCEPT the drvvt. The DRVVT was positive/elevated. The odd thing is that in 2014 at the Mayo Clinic that same test also came back positive/elevated. The doctor at that time said he was not overly concerned about it because I didn't have any other significant to that test with respect to the other labs. I'm concerned they're missing something since that test has now been positive/elevated twice now - several years apart and now I actually have blood clots. I am on the younger side to have blood clots and don't have the high risks that the doctor mentioned (I am 41, am non smoking, and healthy weight etc). I am on the birth control pill but have been consectutively since I was 18 with no issues. I would love to hear some feedback with those who've maybe been down this road as well. What do you Guys think?? Thank you!
