Hi Everyone. I go to St. Thomas' about twice a year, seeing various consultants. I had sagital sinus thrombosis in 2009. The past 2 or 3 times I have been a bit disillusioned with the advice and help from them. I have had quite a few 'flare ups' over the last year getting worse since September. I have had a lot of time off work but am now in early retirement thank goodness. I have had type 2 diabetes for about a year. Basically on the last visit to St Thomas' my 'flare ups' were dismissed as due to the diabetes. Yes I know I have to lose weight and eat healthily but easier said than done when it's hard to move due to the aches in my muscles and joints. My INR is all over the place as well (I now self test and aim for 3.5 - 4). My last blood test showed 'Inflammatory markers' according to my GP. So, my question is: has anyone had experience with the rheumatologists or haematologists at Addenbrookes? (Found names from APS Support UK). I was thinking of asking for a referral there as it is nearer to me than London and also I wonder if I would get more help and support from them. Thankyou.
