Re: Undiagnosed auto-immune
Because of the brain scarring from mini strokes, it is essential that you get anti-phospholipid tests done. If you are positive, you should be on anticoagulants. This is one of the associations with lupus. Also, because of the peripheral neuropathy, please ask for Vit B12 and folate blood levels, often deficient in autoimmune disease, and contributes to the PN, can be supplemented easily. Vit D is often deficient too, so that should be done as well, and supplemented if low. Iron deficiency can cause restless leg syndrome, so an iron and ferritin (stored iron level) should be tested too.
All blood tests and can be done in one draw.
