I suffered a massive bilateral pulmonary embolism in January 2016 and was on Warfarin for 6 months with no review at the end of this period. The PE was unprovoked and after reading an expert rheumatologists report at work on a case I was working on (I manage clinical negligence claims for a living) I asked my GP if he would do some screening tests and i had bloods taken in early December 2016. A few weeks later the tests came back positive for lupus antibody. I was referred to a Haematologist at the NHS Trust I work for and seen mid February 2017 and had a bank of bloods tests taken. I was counselled for lifelong anticoagulation at the same time due to my risk factors and commenced Warfarin the week after. The tests came back positive for lupus antibody. I find I have some of the symptoms of APS but given that my blood tests were about 10 weeks apart (and not 12 weeks as guidelines seem to say) I'm confused as to whether I have it. I get very tired easily and also suffer frequent pins and needles, dizziness, very dry throats, memory lapses and attacks of Shingles 2-3 times a year. I was suffering from a bout of Shingles when I had my PE last year. My job is stressful and wondering whether I have APS is really making me think of whether it is time to leave my job for something not so demanding. The Haematologist has not given a diagnosis of APS in his letter to my GP, only that I have had two positive tests for lupus antibody and that this is an additional risk factor. Any advice or pointers would be appreciated! Thanks.
