Welcome to the site. I am sorry to hear about what has happened with you from the Lupus. I hope that you never get anymore clots. That is so scarey.
My name is Kathy and I have SLE, Lupus and a host of other auto-immune disorders ans you can read in my signature. I will be 50 in December.
It sounds like you have the Antiphospholipid Syndrome with the Lupus is probably why you got the clots. I am fortunate not to have that problem.
I just want to welcome you to the site. There will be others who will come to greet you. Everyone here is so nice and they have a wealth of information. Please keep posting.
Lupus for many years. Like most of my life. Sjogrens that started at 35 and Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteo-Arthritis of the spine, Ankylosing Spondilitis, Periferal Neuropathy, mild CP and now just recently diagnosed with PA. I had a disc replaced in December of 2007.
Plaquenil, Sulindac, Imuran, Celiac diet, Tramadol and B12 shot once a month.
