I was diagnosed with APS when it was called anticardiolipin antibody syndrome in the early 90's, and my 5 8 wk miscarriages were blamed on it. I only take 81 mg. of aspirin daily for it's anti-platelet/anticoagulant effect. I gave myself heparin injections in my abdomen trying to save one of my babies. Some days my neuro symptoms mimic a stroke, and it is scarey for sure. I wrote my Advanced Directive for my family when my left side went numb.
