Hi to all, I'm new here and I would like to excuse my self for my English writing as I'm from Malta.

I was diagnosed with protein s deficiency after my 3rd miscarriage in 2014. They started clopidogrel 1 year ago as while I was on work my right arm got weak. They did all the test ecg,brain scan ,blood and neck ultrasound, all came back fine.

My levels are

Protein s activity 51

Protein is free functional 50

I'm having panic attacks and can't enjoy life as I'm always afraid that the stroke will hit me in any time, also I'm afraid of travelling which I have to do with my 13 year old daughter as she takes alot of ballet courses in UK.I asked the doctor to do the test again but he said there is no need the levels are what they are:(.

When you are travelling on anticoagulants you are in a better position than other passengers. They may have an undiagnosed risk and they have no protection at all. Whereas you have medication to protect you, and you are aware of possible symptoms, and can take additional precautions seriously. https://www.proteinsdeficiency.com/lifestyle/air-travel.php

I have flown from UK to Australia on my standard dosage of Warfarin... there is no need for anything more than usual however if you a doing any long distance travel it helps if you can visit your doctor beforehand to confirm you are fit to fly. Let the doctor do their job and advise you what is best for you based on your medical history.
