Lots of people with lupus also have APS (anti-phospholipid antibodies) or anti-cardiolipid antibodies. This causes THICK, STICKY BLOOD. It cause heart attacks and strokes even in young people. Ginny had a stroke from this (see her signature).
DON'T fool around with this. Get to the hospital or a doctor and get checked.
