I am being forced into a psychiatric assessment here in Spain for symptoms associated with APS. If I don’t go it is a possibility that all treatment that I currently receive will be withdrawn. Understandably I am now really worried and nervous about this. My INR level is either below 1.3 or above 4.8 constantly and I haven’t been within my target range for more that 18 months. I have a INR target of 2-3. I am experiencing migraines, loss of the use of limbs (temporary thankfully), loss of the sight in one eye, violent trembling to name but a few. Here they are putting all this down to stress, mid-life crisis oh and the menopause! Therefore, I have searched extensively on the internet and printed off information from Wikipedia, information that both Professor’s Hughes and Munta Khamashta have had published in Spanish re my symptoms to take with me to my appointment next Monday. I tried to find something relevant to my symptoms on You Tube too (in Spanish) but haven’t been successful. I would be really grateful if anyone could offer any other ideas, or do you think that I have it pretty well covered?
As a footnote just to let you all know when I am fit enough (INR currently 1.1 and recovering from what I believe to be yet another stroke) I shall fly to the London Bridge clinic. I’ve spoken to one of the receptionists there who was most helpful in advising me about an appointment with them.
