... Positive, welcome. I don't think you're crazy, not one bit. I'm only a patient but what you describe warrants immediate medical attention, in my opinion.

APS is a blood clotting disorder seen in people with lupus but that can also exist... (2 replies)

... Dear Sandy, I sympathize with your quest for diagnosis. The only thing that kept me sane is that the symptoms did subside (with Zoloft-- so I really did start believing I was depressed). I was diagnosed via a simple blood test (ACA =anticardiolipin antibody test), by a fertility specialist (Reproductive Endocronogist) following my latest miscarriage (two months ago). ... (12 replies)
... Hi LiseesMom, I am happy you were diagnosed. I am still trying to find the root of my problems, I have posted on many boards (Lupus,Lyme,MS,Neuropathy). The reason I am responding to you is because of your "tingling sensation". That happens to be my worst symptom, I have it in my legs & feet really bad, and my arms & hands really bad. I was tested for APS and it came back... (12 replies)

... roblems, speech and memory problems, tingling sensation in arms and legs, fatigue and headaches. The only thing that is a constant is the fatigue, but I suppose APS could explain some of my neurological symptoms. I still have terrible twitching, though it is particularly noticeable in my arms and legs. ... (73 replies)
... Many of my symptoms over the last year have confused my doctors, and you actually named a few of them. MS was ruled out early on, which made the neuro issues even more puzzling. ... (73 replies)

... Hi. I think autoimmunes can run in families somewhat, but they can be different ones. In my family, we have type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and lupus. But I think the doctor's question makes total sense because SSA (anti-Ro) is seen in both lupus and Sjogren's syndrome. I tested positive for it but was diagnosed only with lupus. However, it is possible to have both. ... (2 replies)
... Coldtoes, I know so little about MS, but like you write, it's horribly confusing that you've had three spinal taps that showed O-bands, yet your lack of brain lesions seems to point your drs. away from MS. Have you talked to others diagnosed with MS, to ask which tests nailed down *their* diagnoses? In your shoes I'd visit my local library. (See the "sticky post" on... (7 replies)
... I dont know for sure all of the tests that were run, but I know some of them.. CRP, ESD and Lyme... I dont know if any were run having to do with APS or Sjogrens or anything like that.. all I know for sure is the bloodwork is "not good". ... (5 replies)
... d look up the Lups Nephritis, she fits all the criteria, has for awhile, and her kidney has not been functioning at a normal rate in yrs.
