ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My 3 younger sisters have all been diagnosed with a blood clotting disorder: deep vein thrombosis. 4 years ago one of my three younger sisters suddenly died at home due to the blood clotting, even though being on blood thinners. She went to the ER twice and they sent her home with no help. Ever since then, my two younger sisters seem to have lost hope, as they are now around the age she died. Doctors do not know what to do. They are both on blood thinners and one has two stents (in her lung and heart) and they still both get severe migraines and are so weak they can't hold a job. We have tried multiple times to get them into a teaching hospital like Stanford but insurance is always throwing a fit and finds a way to hold us back. I have been tested and had no blood clots at the time of my MRI/MRA with contrast but I also have migraines and similar symptoms to my sisters. Please help us. We've tried everything and I can NOT lose another sister.
