Hi Peter.
I want to Thankyou so much for all what you do for this site.........looks like you are a very busy man on here ;D ;D........well Im gonna make you a little busier ;)
I have had 3 miscarriages and I have now been tested for Hughes Syndrome.
With our last 2 miscarriages I took baby aspirin but stopped cos I panicked about taking it and my clinic didnt think I needed it so I stopped and sadly our babies died :'(.
I have has 2 tests done and these were the results :-

1st test - Lupus Anticoagulant - Negative.
Cardiolipin Antibody IgG 3.0
Beta-2-Glycoprotein-1 Abs Positive

2nd test - Lupus Anticoagulant - Negative
Cardiolipin Antibody IgG 3.3
Beta-2-Glycoprotein-1 Abs Positive

Does this mean there is a good chance I do have Hughes Syndrome :-\ ???

I also have been diagonised with Multiple Sclerosis, and I do know that Hughes Syndrome can mimic M.S symptoms, Im still not sure about the M.S as my symptoms haven't got much if any worse in the past year or two.

Thanks again for your help.........what would we do without you on here.

Take care
Jo

It sounds possible, a referral to a consultant haematologist may be appropriate at this stage.

I also have been diagonised with Multiple Sclerosis, and I do know that Hughes Syndrome can mimic M.S symptoms, Im still not sure about the M.S as my symptoms haven't got much if any worse in the past year or two.

These two often go together. Your neurologist is the best person to advise on this one.

Good luck!

Peter
