Hello everyone! I had multiple strokes in Feb/March 2017... After lots of labs and tests and in and out of the hospital due to cva's. After finding out about my PFO, and having them working on scheduling a surgery to close it, the blood tests came back and I was diagnosed with APS. So they believe the APS caused the PFO to throw the multiple clots that were causing the strokes... I was then put on Warfarin. I'm super sensative to the med... they send me sky rocketing one week and the next week plumeting... I made it to two weeks and then right back to one week consecutively to be checked... I have never been longer than two weeks between being checked. It has been a rough 7/8 months so far. I can feel the differences in the high and the low INR... and the difference in the shift from one to the other in a week... there has been so many things that has happened since February. Yes, February is when it all started but I went to one hospital and was sent home with dx of complex migraine... and treated me as though i was a drug seeker,needless to say they missed the cva. The next time I went to a different hospital. That is where all these things came to light. Tested and positive for Lupus as well, but no diagnosis of Lupus as of yet... It's just been a crazy roller coaster this year. That's some of my story anyhow.
