    Cathy,

    Run a search on hypercoagulation in the window above and you'll find lot's of connections. Jellybelly's posts are particularly clear. Hang in there; hope you feel better soon. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Hi Cathy,

    I'm not sure if my experience is relative to yours, but I have had a dvt, blood clot in my upper thigh. It happened 11 years ago, just got fm diagnosis 3 months ago.

    What I do know about me is that I also have sle(lupus) for 16 years and have the antiphospholipid antibody. I assume for me the lupus and aps go together, don't know your history nor am I a dr, but you don't have to have lupus to have that antibody.

    you may want to find out if you have been tested for this. I was hospitalized at the time of the clot and also went on coumadin. It has been years and I take just baby asprin and have my blood drawn to keep it in check. Good luck to you,

    Sharie
