Re: Aps

Dear Leslie, I'm really glad you switched rheumies & tacks, plus that your new rheumie looked into APS and now knows to watch & treat you if need be.

I wonder if you are the only one here who fulfills both the ACR criteria for lupus & RA, i.e., to have "rhupus"? Aren't the ACR criteria for RA roughly as confusing and difficult to fathom as the ones for lupus? (Yikes!)

Anyway, I suspect it takes a really sound rheumie to see both, not to try to pigeonhole you into either/or, and make that unusual "call".

Did your bleeding stop yet? HOPE SO! Looking forward to your next update. Bye for now. Always, Vee
