I had 3 to 4 blood clots in lungs and hospital did a test to see why I had them fibringen antithrombin III protein c protein c antigen all high?

Not the cause of PE: Pulmonary embolism (pe) is an abnormal clot. Your docs are looking for cause. Fibrinogen is an acute phase reactant and is not likely a cause of your clot. Low protein c and low at-iii can contribute to pe; however your values are high and therefore did not contribute to your pe. I am sure your docs are looking for other causes. Good luck. ...Read more

I've found it impossible to find a dr. That is knowledgeable enough about eds III to help me properly manage it. How can find a dr. That is able to?

Non-narcotic pain rx and physical therapy to try to strengthen joints are used. Other than that, learning coping skills to live with this bothersome but non-fatal condition is key.

What are the difference bewtween the mcmi-iii and the mmpi psychological tests? Can you tell me what is the difference between the mcmi-iii and the mmpi test and which one is the best one for a psychological evaluation for custody? I heard they don't use

The: The mcmi-iii is the millon clinical multiaxial inventory (3rd edition). This test helps assess psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, personality disorders and psychosis. Since it was developed for hospitalized mental patients, psychologists need to be very familiar with this test and careful about how to interpret the scores on the regular population.

The mmpi is the minnesota multiphasic personality inventory. This test also assesses psychological and personality disorders like the one above, but has been developed for and is more commonly used in the general population. This is the third most-used test in the field of psychology behind iq and achievement tests. ...Read more
