I'm new here, just hoping for a bit of advise. I was diagnosed with SCLE last year via a biopsy & started on hydroxychloroquine for the summer. After a couple of weeks I had my clotting factors checked & was found to have a positive lupus Anticoagulant all other bloods were normal. I stayed on the hydroxychloroquine until November. I'd had joint & muscle pain for as long as I could remember but was surprised at having such a big improvement in these symptoms while taking the hydroxychloroquine. Nor did I have any migraines, I've been having those since my teenage years. I was referred to a rheumatologist in January after joint & muscle pain crept back. Restarted on hydroxychloroquine with repeat bloods. All normal except 2nd positive lupus Anticoagulant. Referred onto a haematologist. He decided I should have a 3rd lot of bloods processed at a different laboratory. These have come back as negative for lupus Anticoagulant. I am confused as to how this will effect me now. He was sure they would come back positive for a 3rd time. I have no other aps symptoms.
