Hi Carol, sorry to hear you are having heart and respiratory problems. Even though I only have "a lupus like, sjogrens like autoimmune condition caused by liver disease", I do strangely have anticardiolipin antibodies, like why my heart? and had some damage that repaired itself when the flare was over. Also have COPD. Just for some weird reason I have those antibodies and not some others. I have an odd grabbag of them compared to normal lupus patients because of having like secondary autoimmune disease. I had to laugh on you saying your docs need to be locked together in a room until they figure it out. I like that. I hope you get good results and feel better soon.
