In brief: More familiar name
This is better-known as antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, which can be seen in lupus or "just happens".
An antibody against a molecular unit involved in blood clotting actually makes the cascade work too well. It's dangerous, and you will probably want to be treated by a specialist.
