Hi, I'm new to the site and recently diagnosed. I'm still a little bewildered at the information I'm obtaining regarding the prognosis, but somewhat relieved to finally have a name for what is happening to me. As I learn more about APS and the factors used to diagnose me, I see things from my past start to make more sense. I'm fairly certain the genetic predisposition for this came from my grandmother. She died before my birth when my father was 14. She died of a rare blood disease that no one in the family could remember the name of. Science has come a long way since then and I'm thankful to have caught this on the first thrombotic event and within 6 months of very troubling symptoms. I look forward to reading others experiences and sharing my own. It's nice to have found this site and to have a chance to connect with other people who can give some experienced insight.
On to my question..... which type(s) of specialist's do you prefer seeing? At this time I'm under the care of a hematologist, but wondering if I should seek out a Rheumatologist as well. Your opinions are greatly appreciated.
