My Hemotologist told me they're doing studies and we may be able to use Xarelto as blood thinner! Not for advanced people like me, because I had Arterial Clots and lost my leg! But for those of u maybe that's good news! I hope so! I'll update u on my APS! My Hemotologist felt bad about not diagnosing me sooner so he repeated APS test without telling me! When he got them back he said I was hoping u didn't have APS so I ran ur tests again and they're still very hi! You definitely have it! Yes I know I said ! Lol... I also have RA and Sjogrens which now is kicking in big time!!! I had a tooth pulled, on side where a wisdom tooth years ago broke my jaw and lead to 6 operations to correct my face! Leaving me with no feeling on one side of my face and lip! I have constant burning tongue and since my tooth pulled I've a month ago ,. I now have self diagnosed Neuralgia! My face and lip are in severe pain and I drool during day during waking hours and have sores on my lips from drooling! It's highly embarrassing and very uncomfortable! Least to say excruciating nerve pain that nothing helps! I'll call Dentist tomorrow and she'll tell me to see a Neurologist and I probably won't go to useless Neurobdoc that certainly don't get it!!! Lol... I know what to do without the Neuro! Heat helps a lot! Moist heat! Anything else too invasive for me! My hubby has 2 weeks left of chemotherapy and radiation! He sleeps all day everyday! But that came with the Alzheimer's! He's progressed with the Alzheimer's since 2 surgeries and heart attack on March 22! I love to read all ur posts! Not so fav just cracks me up!!! Love u Lynn!!! You all are so very smart with all the scientific thins u say and u make me understand it! I totally understand things but can't put it into words as you gals do!!! I'm amazed at Y'all!!! Hello Texas I think Kelly from Texas! I'm from Long Island, New York!!!
