My mom had a stroke at age 58

She wasn't aware she had Antiphospholipid Syndrome(an autoimmune disease and blood clotting disorder; now I found out I have it. Has anyone every heard of this disorder?

  • I haven't heard of the disorder. But strokes run in my family. My grandmother was scrambled because of all the strokes at a fairly early age. She's had many at least five large ones, and many minis on a regular basis.
