Luigi on Aug, 5, 2014:
I used to get Migraines 3-6 times a year. I've switched from Rat Poison (Coumidan) to Xarelto and now I'm getting them 2-4 times a month. I had a successful Cardio Ablation done and am no longer in A Fib. I'm thinking why am I still on blood thinners anyway?
From this study (2 months ago):
My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.
From this study (2 months ago):
Frequent migraines, neck and spine pain
