Does Anyone Else Have APLS? If So Are You On Blood Thinners?

I am currently needing to decide whether or not to go back on Lovenox. Ideally I would but the issue is I have had several internal bleeds from the Lovenox. So I have to decide to risk clots or do I take the med and risk a major bleed? Stressful.

What Medication Is Prescribed For Anti-phospholipid Syndrome?

What Medication Is Prescribed For Anti-phospholipid Syndrome?

Can't seem to get answers from my primary or Hematologist if I should be seeing a specialist or if I should be taking other medication besides the Lovenox. I have been told that LA is Lupus and also that it is not, just having a hard time getting answers. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

I took lovenox and warfarin for awhile. Then after my second PE, I was put on eliquis. So far so good. But it's only been 2 months. 🤞
