I had a stroke in 2006 at the age of 44. this is how I became aware that I had hughes syndrome. After my diagnosis I was put on Coumadin. I began having seizures caused my brain damage from my stroke. So my Hymatologist took me off Coumadin due to the risk of head injury and put me on plavax. I'm concerned that plavix wont prevent a re-ocurrance of a clot.
