Hi - I have recently found out that i have APS. This has taken 12mths to get this result. In my first pregnancy they found a PE in my lungs at 32 weeks. I was in hospital until baby arrived and put on clexan twice daily. After bubs I was on warfarn until I fell pregnant again. I then injected myself twice daily with clexane and that pregnancy went find. I was taken off warfarn around 6-9mths after my second baby. A few months after that I started getting joint pains. Which got worse and worse as the months went by. Some days in tears cause every bone felt like it was broken. I also started to put on heaps of weight. No matter how much exercise I do and what I eat, it feels like every mouthfull is another kg!! I finally got to see a specialist this week who tells me I have APS. I am so pleased to finally feel I am getting somewhere after being to the doctors 100s of times. On Monday i start taking 20mg of methotrexate. Really hoping this helps. Has anyone had good results from this?
