I don't know much about this either, except what Ginny has told me. I would heed her advice, and try to get some blood thinner as a daily med. I am waiting for my blood results to see if I have this too. I hope I don't, but if I do, than there isn't much I can do. i already take plavix due to a stroke that I had in 2002.
I can't understand why your doctor did not give you medicine for this already.
take care, and let us know how things turn out.

I also have the Lupus Anticoagulant. What that has meant for me is that I have had multiple miscarriages and I threw a small clot in my liver. I have never had a stroke but I have only had it for 5 years. My new rhuemy wants me to have an MRI of the brain and to see a Hematologist that specializes in that. When I get pregnant I have to have Heparin inj. twice a day increasing the dosage every couple of weeks. I also have tingling in my appendages and numbness from the Raynaud's. None of my doctor's have ever said in was because the thickness of the blood.
That all I know hope it helps.
