- 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.

Severe RA - taking sulfasalazine, but extreme fatigue. Good pain relief with celebrax and cymbalta. Taking prednisone for 6 months, tapering to half a tablet for one month.
