APS is not widely known here in Canada. My rheumatologist basically told me that until I have a stroke or clot not to worry about it.
I have an appointment with a hematologist tomorrow and I want to go prepared. I have had all three of the tests done. The Beta 2, and Lupus Anticoagulant come back negative. The anti-cardiolipin has come back positive three times (41.2, 58, 38).
I have taken it upon myself to take a baby aspirin each day. I have really nasty headaches and terrible muscle and joint pain, especially in one hip. My rheumatologist told me to do yoga. I am of normal weight and have had thyroid cancer, so my thyroid levels are under control.
My question is what to say to the hematologist when he says my blood levels are only slightly off, that I don’t need medication because I only tested positive for one out of three tests.
