MS, SLE and antiphospholid syndrome

Postby BBE » Sun Sep 23, 2012 12:07 am

Hey everybody.
I consider myself well educated about MS because of my wife living with this disease for 5 years. I have always suspected that CCSVI treatments are sometimes effective only because of baby aspirin and/or cleaxne course after the treatment. But now after 2 miscarriages in last 12 months and detection of some antiphospholipid antibodies I found some new connections, which I never saw mentioned on this forum.
There are lot of articles but this one describes it well:

May it be that "some of" you people with MS actually have aPS? It is also about "mini" strokes, lesions in brain etc.
In that case anticoagulants for life like aspirin, clexane, warfarin or omega 3 may be really helpful.

Hi BBE--Yeah, Cure is right...we've had lots and lots of discussion on this, which I found out when I was looking into hypercoagulation issues for my husband and searched this site. He was tested for APS (negative) but I still created the endothelial health program to help him deal with hypercoagulation and inflammation issues. He still had malformed jugular veins and collapsed venous sinus before venoplasty--even while on serrapeptase, nattokinase, omega 3, etc.
that search function really works :) Look at the upper right hand corner--
