Hi all - I just thought id put a quick note on here after a meeting with my Heamatologist, he says that the reason there is a link between MS and APS is not only because APS mimics MS in some of the traits of the illness, but also because a percentage of MS sufferers have also been found to have anticardiolipin antibodies present intermittingly, which i found rather interesting and didnt know. I know that until the discovery of APS a lot of people where misdiagnosed as having MS, but never realised the significance of it. I would love to wind forward another 20 years and see how all this unfolds and how all these different auto immune disorders are linked. MS although neurological is now classed as an auto immune disorder ive read (rightly or wrongly) just though it was an interesting point, im awaiting results of a lumber puncture to rule out MS as i am sero negative. It seems that this is a common occurence where MS has to be ruled out before committing to the diagnosis of APS. X
