I haven't written in a long time. I have APS and Factor V Leiden, both diagnosed 4 years ago after a history of DVT's in my legs. Also diagnosed 2 years ago with a brain aneurysm in the right carotid ophthalmic artery which has nothing to do with the APS.
I am on Warfarin 2.5 mg per day and my INR is pretty much at the level my hematologist (who treats me for this ) wants. Mostly around 3 to 3.2. After a bout with the flu 2 months ago, it was running around 4.0 but now stabilized.
I have a history of spontaneous metatarsal fractures and torn tendons in my legs and was sent to a rheumatologist who did tons of bloodwork and didn't find a reason why. The only result that came out of all his tests is a diagnosis of autoimmune hepatitis which he did not test me for, but the lab couldn't read his handwriting and did the test. Retested and it still showed up but my primary care physician said my liver enzymes are good so leave it alone for now.
I am currently nursing another fracture--MRI shows edema in bones of 4th and 5th metatarsals and also extensive edema across top of foot. In the last 3 years I have had over 10 fractures in the foot, and even one in the tibia.
Two doctors later, and still swelling for about 2 months. Has anyone experienced any of this? Nothing precipitates the fractures. No doctor has ever suggested that the APS could be the cause.
