Hi. Thanks for all the messages I received since my first post. I am seeing a haematologist tomorrow re my lupus anticoagulant. 16 years of pos results and I actually got to see a rheumatologist who would only consider his own tests (neg) and inferred I was an ALCOHOLIC! due to random liver readings I DO NOT DRINK! but that was his thoughts on my butterfly rash! I was sent away with nothing but him using up all my health insurance allowance. I am text book Lupus positive and have pos bloods to match. I live in the Midlands and I am happy to travel to find a Dr who can really help. Is there any other fellow sufferer who can point me in the right direction of a good lupus informed rheumatologist? Many thanks and good wishes to you all.
