Yesterday I saw a cardiologist for the first time. Am having some other problems not related to APS and he was going through my entire health history. He made the comment that I looked 'too good' to have "a serious case of APS". He said that, in his experience, most people with APS looked very sick.
Now, I've had a stroke, more tia's than can count, my skin is mottled, 1 miscarriage, ETC., and that is not healthy. I am asking you others out there, honestly, do you all look sick? I'm not trying to be difficult nor funny here but feel I was being put off by this doctor, that my APS was not being taken seriously.
Am having surgery in 10 days for a cancerous tumor which must be removed; they are taking that very seriously. But it seems this APS is not being taken seriously, nor has it ever been.
