I was on warfarin for 6 months and I went off it a month ago as the left leg showed to be dissolved and free of the clot. As I went off warfarin the symptoms of tingling/pain, muscle spasm and blood flowing around in my calfs and pooling in my feet worsened. I have been wearing compression hose the whole time and I was told to go to a lighter compression now. the pain is much improved from when I first had the dvt but it is still not gone.
I'm on Warfarin for the past 2 1/2 weeks and my last PT INR test was at 2.9. Today I slammed the car door on my hand.. It hurt right away, the swelling has gone down, no bruising yet but my hand hurts and a little pain on my wrist.. Should I go to the emergency room, am I at risk for internal bleeding in my hand.. I know if I hit my head I should go but is as serious if you have a blow to your hand.
I am worried about being on Warfarin. I really smacked it, but it did not break the skin and I did not see stars, pass out or anything. I called the nurse and she told me to watch for double vision or dizziness, but she said they worry more about people slipping and falling and cracking their head. So far I just have a slight headache, but my anxiety is kicking in and that's never good. Has anyone had this happen? Any input? Thanks.
They insisted at this juncture to put in a pacemaker and put her on Metoprolol, Warfarin, CartiaXT (cardizem), and her usual Norvasc and Atakan. Since this episode and these medications, she has experienced extreme swelling of the lower extremities and now a painful tingling that starts in the late afternoon each and every day and no exercise diminishes the swelling, so she puts them up.
Since his Warfarin treatment he has had endless leg ulcers which refuse to heal (even after skin grafts) he also has problems with swelling feet, has problems walking etc. Is there some alternative to Warfarin? Is there something that can be done? Are the ulcers related to the Warfarin?

I have a long history of DVT and most recent a DVT while my INR was 7.0 A few days later a (R) arm swelling and a diagnostics done saying history of subclavian clot and stenosis. My sister also has SLE and is 56 with 2 stents. I cannot find anything on the internet about future outcome or treatment for these issues. My question is "what do and who do I go to to resolve this recurent subclavian stenosis?" Isn't this dangerous? I exercise and eat healthy. I am not over weight.
As with other drugs, warfarin can cause allergy, rash, itching and GI symptoms like diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. It can cause loss of hair, joint and muscle pain, swelling of hands and feet, shortness of breath etc. Bleeding into brain can cause stroke, and into lungs can also be serious. If you are on warfarin you will need to get INR test done regularly to avoid any mishaps. Take care!
Yesterday my ankle began to swell, and last night and today it is still swollen, my leg feels strangely tingly and heavier and achy with the odd uncomfortable twinge. it only started yesterday so I dont understand if this is normal or if I should go get it checked but I dont want to seem dramatic by going to docs if it is normal to have this happen hence I thought I would ask online first.
The next day I had severe calf pain and the day after my foot swelled up. I went to the doctor and they did an ultrasound and found a blood clot. They put me on Coumadin/warfarin and Lovenox injections until I get to the right dose of coumadin (which should be by this weekend). I was told that coumadin does not remove or breakup the clot it just prevents it from going to the lung/heart.
I was diagnosed with blood clots in my right calf in May andhave been on Warfarin. My levels are 1.9-1.6 and I was getting better. The swelling stopped about 10 days ago. 3 days ago the swelling came back and is worse than ever. Now I am having a buning stabbing pain in my thigh in the front and it hurts very badly especially when I try to walk. My dr. said it can not be a clot because I am on the warfarin but I am very scared.

I assume everyone is different so the time will vary. Its been 1 month since the swelling started and it seems to fluctuate with me. In the morning my swelling is virtually gone but by the end of the day my leg is double the size of the other one. I assume that's because my leg is flat on my bed when I sleep and it gets worse as the day goes on because i'm on my feet most of the day. I work in retail so im usually on my feet for 7 hours. I dont mind being on my feet cause there is no pain.
i also have a heavy chested feeling. during my flares i have swelling and stiffness of my joints and muscles, weakness in my hands, dropping things without knowing i let go. I tend to get a fuzzy feeling in my head and have touble thinking. I am not sure what to think about this, my doctor hasnt told me very much and I guess I feel up in the air. Dont know if this is normal, if I should worry, or if this diagnosis is correct.
Every now and then I have had slight pain in my left temple, cheek or ear region. There is swelling of the mucous membrane in my left maxillary sinus, and also some in my ethmoid sinus. I can hardly get any mucus from my sinuses. Early in December 2012 I got a new sympton, retro-orbital discomfort. An ENT doctor said that the retro-orbital pain may result from a virus infection, and the previously occurred left side temporal pain may result from my cervical dystonia.

I visted an ER 12 hours later because the pain and and swelling had spread to right torso and neck area. Blood was drawn and another ultrasound was performed. Blood lab results were negative for infection and the ultrasound was negative for blood clot. I have begun the anitbiotic and have not yet begun the warfarin because I'm afraid to start taking it if it is unnecessary. Last evening a large lump appeared in my right armit. I would dercibe it as "sore", not painful to touch.
When I was first diagnoised with a-fib I was put on aspirin. My a-fib only happened occasionaly and I had no other heart related problems. My CHADS SCORE was 0. About a year later my a-fib episodes became more frequent and my heart rate became much higher over 200 during the attacks. My EP told me that I needed to come off the aspirin and start on Coumadin because of the higher heart rate.
I knew there was a connection between the lupus anticoagulant and blood clots, but I couldn't figure out whether it was because of the lupus, or something else. Currently I'm off the warfarin - I just had a doppler earlier this year, and my leg was clear of clots. My doctor recommended aspirin for me, and he wanted to put me on Plavix. I resisted, because Plavix is just so dang expensive. I should pay more attention to my aspirin regimen, too - I rarely remember to take one.
The goals for DVT include preventing the clot to grow, preventing a clot from breaking off and traveling to the lung or other organ, avoiding long-lasting complications (leg pain and swelling) and preventing blood clots from recurring. Blood Thinners or anticoagulants are the most common type of treatment for DVT. Heparin and warfarin are the two main types of anticoagulants. They have the same action and indication.
Ok call me slow... so are you saying that the numbness, tingling, and swelling are due to poor circulation? This is a constant for me that never goes away... Not always the swelling but I do have it a lot of the time... The tingling and numbness are a constant with me... If I'm getting this right should I go to my doctor and get it checked out? I've always had this problem since the onset of my symptoms... My doctor has never told me that it was due to circulation issues...

Of course she's now prohibited from eating a lot of the vegetables that might otherwise help with her bowel problems, due to the drug's conflicts with Vitamin K. She has really bad swelling in her legs, from the knees down, including her ankles and feet. Since her Coumadin dosage was doubled due to low INR levels about 6 months ago, the swelling has gotten worse. I understand that correlation is not causation, but is this common?
To tell you the truth, there's nothing left that I can eat....between diabetes and watching blood sugar levels, and taking the blood thinner warfarin because of the a-fib, and a statin ( no grapefruit). For every yay, there's a nay. I was wondering if anyone out there feels like the palps build up over a few days and then they break into an episode of a-fib or some other equally aggraving arrhythmia?
A nine hour flight can cause a clot in anyone, and this is why we are told to get up and walk around, wiggle your toes etc. I don't think it's coincidence, I think you were mis-informed.
I did have a high levels of Uric acid - one year ago - which we attributed to gout my not walking - and another occasion with the swelling of my wrist - which we also attributed to gout..
