Questions arising from this for me: if you self-help BEFORE diagnosis to the point that your APS symptoms recede, is this going to impair correct diagnosis?

2nd question - does APS naturally have 'flares', times when it is more or less active as I've read other autoimmune conditions like Lupus do? Do the antibodies come and go and are the levels consistent with the severity of symptoms?

I ask because I still haven't seen a consultant (should be soon) and at the moment I'm finally experiencing some improvement due to my self-help methods - although still taking migraine meds several times a week.

Yes, antibodies come and go, I am a great example of that myself, I also flare, but as I have so many diseases it is not always possible to work out which one is causing it, and the trigger points. I took Aspirin before diagnosis and it did not effect my outcome with Prof Hughes or anybody else for that matter. I hope you have a great appointment, and that it is with one of our recommended specialists. MaryF

Hi Mary don’t know why but I can’t get on this

Is the link not working with your device, it should lead you straight to the website, sorry for slow delay, I was at a very big funeral yesterday, and before that I was doing a gig on the beach, so not easy to access the internet in the various roles I have had at those. MaryF

Daisy d, try copying the address given, paste it into the browser, but be sure to remove the initial “\” at the start of the address. It’s right before the https. That will work.

Any reason why Dr Hughes now has his own site when ***HSF*** was the original Hughes Syndrome site?

Hi, Prof Hughes used to be involved with that charity as did we as Administrators but now we have a new global charity, this is the only charity he is attached to, a great new venture. Plenty of room in the world for charities, and this one is global as well as for the UK. ghic.world/

I went to the site and found it posted under “self help” at the top of the page. Thank you Mary, always enlightening...

I don’t know why some people seem to have problems opening links on this site. Sometimes if you are using old versions of browsers and not updating them, it will stop you from accessing other websites. If that happens or regularly happens then you need to update your browser to the latest version OR if you can’t do that because it’s linked to your operating system version like IOS and Safari, download another browser such as Firefox or Chrome and try using that instead by copying the link.

Very interesting read that many of us are able to relate to.

What I love about professor Hughes documentation is the easy reading.

He writes in such a way that we can all understand.

What a wonderful dedicated man he is. ( What a lovely photo of him )
