I would like to know if anyone takes blood thinners, and how you feel taking them ?
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.

So, we’ve been wanting another baby for few years now, and we really wanted to try but I ended up being diagnosed with lupus few days ago. I am kind of lost. Has anyone become pregnant while having lupus? How did it turn out? I’m very scared and don’t know what to do. 😥

Was wondering how many of us have been actually tested for APS, antiphospholipid syndrome. .this is common for us Lupies. .and is much more likely to cause migrains and can be very serious.
This past Friday I went to the emergance room cause I had pain going down my left side of my neck. I was seen by some Drs that could'nt figure out what was going on, until they had me have a ultrasound. I was taken to a diffrent room and they sat me down to tell me I have a clot in the area of my neck. Then Drs told me maybe you should stay over night, of coures I said I would feel much better in my home. So they gave me the medications and injections that I have to take every day
