1569985 tn?1328251082 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.

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.

552012 tn?1272859591 Hi, If anyone's reading this, It is now one month and 3 days post op. I feel pretty good most days.

Avatar f tn The pain was substantially reduced sot hat I can now practice my yoga and pilates in kneeling positions with absolutely no pain, but after about a month, I started having gastrointestinal problems...not exactly diarrhea, but... I also take warfarin due to a replaced mitral valve and once-daily extended-release metformin for borderline diabetes. I checked interactions for warfarin and there seems to be no problem with interactions.
Avatar f tn So in December they replaced it with a mechanical valve. I'm now on Warfarin 7.5 and have been maintaining an INR of 2.5-2.8. Last week I had a severe stomach virus and became very dehydrated. I went in for my draw yesterday and recieved a call last night from my cardiologist. He told me to stop the Warfarin for 2 days then decrease my dose to 5.0. My INR was 5.0.....Can a virus and or dehydration cause INRs to rise? I'm going to have a redraw later this week.
Avatar f tn Other symptoms such as headache, joint pain and swelling, weakness, fainting spells, diarrhea and many other symptoms may be present depending on the site of the bleeding.

Avatar n tn It certainly makes sense to use things that have a proven benifit to humans in a carefully controlled way and be able to lower the dose of warfarin as much as possible and avoid warfarin poisoning. I have been hospitolized from this. Not fun. The thing is to be informed and make changes slowly in a controlled way and then stay consistant. That means using the same product from the same company every day just like the warfarin is being used.
