Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Since starting coumadin i am exhausted all the time and have muscle and joint pain. (1 answer)
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.

- I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!
