Ok guys I need some help!
Its been a while since I posted on here and I hope that everyone is doing well! Happy Easter!
I am now 25. My hematologist called yesterday with the results of my labs and my antithyroid antibodies came back elevated. This has never happened before and I was wondering if anyone has had this and it caused any symptoms? Secondly, I wanted to let everyone who helped me w/ info on D-dimer (mine is now 20,000+) that I saw the head Vascular Doc at Cleaveland Clinic and he diagnosed me with Low-Grade Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation. Right now there isn't much they can do for it but watch it until a clot forms (scary I know). He also told me that I'm at a very high risk for stroke at any moment with levels this high. So, basically on that end there isn't much I can do.
Another problem I'm having is I'm forming spontaneous bruises all over my body with out doing anything to cause them. My hematologist doesn't really know what to say about it. Is there someone who knows about Lupus bruising that I could perhaps email a photo of one of mine to just for some peace of mind? Any help you can give I would appreciate! Thanks and Happy Easter
