I have Stevens Johnsons Syndrome. I have had two miscarriages with normal chromosome analysis and have not had an official pregnancy since then (approx 1yr). I have had what feels like the start of a pregnancy (pregnancy symptoms the week prior to my period). I have slightly elevated K cells for which I am doing gluten/dairy free diet with liquid chlorophil.
What effect could the Stevens Johnsons be having?
What can I do to assist in pregnancy?
Have you heard of using a low dose naltrexone in these cases?
Are there additional tests I should have done?

Thank you

yes the root of the problem with SJS are immune complexes and these similar complexes can activate the immune system and interfere with the normal mechanisms of immune tolerance in pregancy. With your history you clearly need a workup and then we can discuss the correct therapy for you.
