Autoimmune Disease - risk of stroke

Hi ![smiley|23x23](upload://641vKFSSPapIadavqg4sCihxmaQ.png "smiley")

It took 10 days after being admitted to hospital, due to suffering a stroke, to be diagnosed with SLE, APS and Factor V Leiden. It really was a lot to hear after being a healthy 21 year old. All of these conditions increase the risk of having blood clots. It often feels like a lot to manage.

Are there other people here who also have autoimmune conditions that increase the risk? How do you manage the condition and side effects of the stroke? 

Thanks ![laugh|23x23](upload://Jv45fR6STHeJaIBzrRPLGnW1sB.png "laugh")
