  • Since starting coumadin i am exhausted all the time and have muscle and joint pain. (2 answers)
    In 2012 I had two PE's and four DVT's; I was diagnosed with a clotting disorder; after several hospitalizations they put an IVC filter in. Within a few months I was diagnosed with RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am chronically exhausted, I have muscle pain - sometimes the pain in my upper legs/thighs is so severe I have lift my leg with my hands to get it into the car. Overtime I lost my livelihood and have become very depressed. Doctors say these symtoms are not related to any of the drugs I am taking.
  • What are the death rate of woman taking coumadin on a long term basis for dvt?
    I had a minor broken ankle which was cast for five days. On second day I felt major pain. After fifth day cast was removed and still no relief. After repeated visits to my doctor, they found a blood clot. Treated with Coumadin. A few weeks later, I got clots in my lungs. Stayed on Coumadin for a year. When taken off, I got another blood clot in my same calf. Doctors recommended taking Coimadin for life. Another year has past ( 2 sice PE) and placed a filter to help prevent any future clots occuring in my legs from traveling to my lungs. Ive been having trouble with this med (eg. Menstral bleeding, headaches, bruising) even though my INR is in the thereuputic range. I am rethinking coming off Coumadin. Concerned about side effects and risk factors using for a long time. I'm only 51 yrs now and can't see myself taking this for 20+ more years without having some major complications like a brain bleed or gastrointestinal bleed, and possibly death. At a crossroad.

  • Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
    I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
  • Constipation due to nyquil
    Very bad constipation. Had lower stomach pains for days
  • 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.
  • The effect of magnesium citrate on coumadin
    the combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR
  • Nexium improves my constipation
    Started taking Nexium 1 week ago and I noticed improvement with my chronic constipation.
