So . . . the opthamologist who guessed I had APS BEFORE I had strokes and had asked my GP to test me for cardiolipin antibodies (my GP threw his written request into the trash while saying " these hot shots straight from medical school. They think they're so smart.")
ANYWAY -- this opthamologist began joking with me at my last eye exam appointment that if I really wanted a hot tub on our patio he would write me a prescription for one if I thought that would help me convince my husband.
I laughed, showed it to my husband, we laughed together, then I threw it out.
BUT -- a year and a lot of muscle and joint pain later:
Is he right? Is a daily soak in the hot tub a real live, authentic, pays-for-itself-in-saved-medical-bills treatment for sticky blood?
It makes sense, doesn't it, that a nice full body soak in hot, bubbly relaxing water is bound to improve circulation and break up proto clots.
But before I start acting like a spoiled brat and seriously ask my husband if we can make a $5K outlay for a hot tub I thought I'd float (ha ha) this idea by the group.
Anybody else have positive results from hot tub therapy?
