Commented on My Name is Veronica, Co-Founder of INR Tracker, and I have a blood clotting disorder. Ask me anything. almost 2 years ago

I have Antiphospholipid Syndrome and Protein S Deficiency which were both diagnosed in 2002 after eight blood clots. In April last year 2015, I was sent for blood work and the BW determined that I tested positive for the Lupus Antibody! My INR target is really high @ 4.5 with a non-blood draw up to 5.9. My l last visit my INR was 4.7. No bleeding, no bruising. But, I have to be extremely careful in all that I do. I can sympathize with you because I was just 46 when My first clot was found. I've had 4-clots in my L-leg, 1-clot in my R-ankle, 1-traveled through my heart causing my heart enzymes to elevate thus a mild heart attack, 1-on my brain causing an Ischemic stroke and the final one traveled throughout my body causing a T.I.A. (mini stroke). Finally I was sent for bloodwork which determined my chronic condition. I (like you) felt invincible @ just 46 years old. I continued to work after the first clot (clots in years 1992, 1993, 1999, 2000, 2001 & 2002 thank God for FMLA) until the plant shut down in 2004.
