Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is there anyone suffering from fat necrosis of the soft tissue caused by coumadin
In 2006, after receiving coumadin for pluminary embolisms I started having severe pain in my thigh. No one listen to me. In 2013 I went to the RA doctor-after xrays she showed me all these spots in the xrays. No one knew what it was. They sent me to the kidney doctor but she thought it was califilaxis. Then also in 2013 I had knee replacement. They gave me coumadin again...more lumps...more pain. Finally, a doctor researched and came up with coumadin causing Fat Necrosis.
It is in all my soft tissue and even my hands.
- I am wondering if xarelto is causing me to have leg tremors? (1 answer)
In May of last year I was in the hospital being treated for dizziness and high blood pressure. They ran an EKG but didn't discover anything, the hospital put me on 25 mg a day of metroprolol tartrate. I went to a doctor and she switched me to lisinopril for the entire summer and it caused a great deal of adverse effects such as nearly passing out on a daily basis, sick, tired all the time, and really feeling ill all day long. I was switched back to metroprolol tartrate and gradually increased to 200 mg a day. I went to a heart doctor and he put me on xarelto. After being on it for a bout a month, I noticed my legs starting to shake when I am in a particular position. This only started after I started the xarelto. I don't have an appt with my heart doctor till June again. Should I bring this up to my regular doctor? He didn't want to put me on warfarin but I am wondering what to do?

- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
