From this study (2 months ago):
had sciatica and an epidural shot. After the shot tremors started on left leg and now I have been diagnosed with early Parkinsons. Can the tremors be caused by a drug interaction? The tremors stopped after taking a low dose on dopamine but it makes me dizzy.
Numbness, bruise like pain, tingling, sometimes like multiple needle pricks
Several months after starting xarelto short term memory losses became annoying, just normal things, but seemed more often. Now I have to write everything down and daughter has to go to appts with me because I can't remember what to say or what doctor said to do.
Have "fainted" 3 times unexpectedly, with no warning at all,and no memory,just what people around me say happened.
None of this happened until after I was put on xarelto.
