  • In spite of not eating green foods or taking NSAIDS, my INR is either way low or way high (1.3-6.1) I cannot seem to get this stabalized and have had increasing clotting in my left leg as a result. Could it be the tramadol? If so, what else could I take for fairly severe pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia? Thanks.
