Hello, I am a 31 year old mother of 3 handsome young boys. I suffered a mini stroke on January 6,2012. At first I went to doctor upon doctor and was told they thought I had everything. I saw my neurologist who diagnosed my mini stroke and she also ordered blood tests. I got a call that something was wrong with my blood. I now regularly see a hematologist who was explaining APS to me. I was informed that I needed 3 positive test results to say I have it and 3 negative results to say I don't. I currently have 2 positives. The doctors are pretty sure I have it. I saw my hematologist just yesterday. She performed the ANA test to check for lupus coagulant. I am currently awaiting results(which should be Friday) I have been feeling very sick lately. I have mixed emotions because I have a disorder that many people have never even heard of, but on the other hand I am happy to finally get answers to what happened. I would like to talk with others who are going through the same thing as I am. Thank you!!
