Hi, I have only posted once previously but am now at the end of my tether and feeling really depressed. Have suffered various symptoms for about 30 years. Last year i suffered a pretty bad episode as I call it. When speaking to my doctor about it he advised it definitely sounded like a TIA and that's when he put two and two together and came up with Hughes Syndrome. Blood test were done and one showed "abnormal". He had immediately put me on Clopidogrel which has helped slightly. Referred me to Hematology but results came back negative so as I was seronnegative they basically washed their hands of me. He then referred me to Rheumatology and after a long wait I finally got an appointment last week. What a complete waste of time. The examination consisted of her feeling my muscles and then saying oh you've not got arthritis but fibromyalgia. Oh and you dont have APS as that only counts if you've had a miscarriage or a blood clot! I did explain i hadn't had a miscarriage but that was because I only had one child and didnt want any more. With regards the fibromyalgia, i said I was labelled with that about 30 years ago and am still adamant I don't have it. She basically refused me a blood test as there was no point since I had one last year with hematology. Basically I was sent away feeling that I was a complete fraud and was wasting her time. She didn't even ask me about any symptoms that i have such as Balance problems, dizziness, paralysis, memory issues, headaches, TIAs Irregular Heart beat. Where do I go from here? Any recommendations for even a private consultation with someone who knows about seronegative hughes.? Sorry If i am rambling, I am just so fed up that nobody apart from my doctor seems to want to help.
