Well yes I am slightly, always have been. When i first found this wonderful webpage i started to take aspirin as a little experiment. What had i to lose? i was in constant pain with knotty lump muscles in my triceps thighs hip area and back in fact every muscle except my stomach. my trigger point therapist would ask every week what have you been doing? I was so tired!! would wake repeatedly at night with numb hands and arms with pins and needles if that make sense? my legs would jerk about on the sofa when resting and my head felt heavy almost a headache but not quite, my vein by the back of knee was very hot and swollen.
Today I was thinking i have not been woken with pins and needles in ages or had a headache it doesn't hurt to move and i am not so desperately tired ( when i was a child i used to get home from school and go straight to bed!!). I think this is great.
i still have corn beef skin and white foot or or white hand in the cold, but i always have had.
I am still waiting to hear from the haematology department at Derriford hospital. I hope it will be soon now the holiday have passed.
I also received a lovely email from Professor Hughes via the charity website. He agrees it is certainly worth investigating the possibility of APS again.
I do wonder is this all in my head? should i continue taking the aspirin 75 mg every other day now. I was taking 2 x 300mg a day at first but once the symptoms started to disappear i lowered the dose. sorry i know it is really bad to self medicate.
Happy New year by the way.
