Hello! I discovered I had antiphospholipid syndrome about nine years ago when I was about twenty years old. The only symptom I had was livedo reticularis ( red blotches on my skin ).I take blood thinners,anticoagulation medicine,and an aspisin a day.I haven't had any other problems ( except the embarrassment of exposing my body to anyone ). I guess this affects everybody differently. The only thing that helps me is warm weather, i'm sensitive to the cold and the livedo is more prominent ( blood vessels constrict )
Nothing I know can be done about this problem.I eat well, exercise, take care of myself and also experiment with natural medicines but nothing works.I know that i'm not alone and that it could be worse.
