- Labral ligament tear in shoulder
MRI showed Labral Ligament Tear in left shoulder while on Xarelto with no fall, injury, or any physical activity that should have resulted in such an injury. Will be seeing Orthopedic doctor very soon for possible surgery.
- Eczema after takin xarelto
After the second day of taking Xarelto for a pulmonary embolism, I noticed a red itchy patch on my neck. My doctor identified it as eczema. I've never had it before in my life.
- Why has my bloodpresher now shot up
My blood pressure was always low 120/68 now since being treated for rheumatoid arthritis it has shot up to 175/92
- Mouth sores from possibly taking xalerto
After my Hip Replacement in 2013 I got a really sore mouth, my husband looked inside to see if he could see anything and it was full of little white blisters even on my tonsils. Went to the dr and was told it was Mouth Sores/fungal infection possibly from this medicine. I couldn't eat anything but was thirsty all the time. I lost 15 lbs in a little over 2 weeks due to not being able to eat. Dr gave me Swish and Spit and they healed up within a few days.
- Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days ago):
Lower Back pain came on suddenly simutaneously with leg pain. Did nothing to cause the pain. Leg pain in thighs (front and back), knees (front and back), shins, even the sides of my legs. Especially painful when sleeping, discomfort when walking or sitting. Pain doesn't stop in legs. Back pain is constant dull ache.
From this study (5 days ago):
The reoccurring and not healing cold sores on the lip and nose area has been a significant problem not had before the medication and is a deep concern.
From this study (1 week ago):
I have otosclerosis on bothe ears already 35-40 years. Both ears have had a stapedectomy surgery on both sides between 1979 and 1983. Sice that time the lost of hearing was more or less stable. In 2006 a CT-Scan has been made and everything was normal.In January 2014 A CT-Scan showed one of the protheses was not connected anymore. A new surgery was planned for November 2014.
In 2010 I started having problems with atrial fibrilation. Since 2010 I used the drug Fenprocoumon to prevent strokes.
Also in January my cardiologist advised me to use Rivaroxaban (Xarelto) 20mg, in order to avoid the continuously checking of the INR of my blood. I started to use 20mg Xarelto per day, during one year.
In November 2015 the surgery on my ear took place. The result was very poor: End of December 2014 a audio/hearing test has been done wich concluded a 50% loss of hearing. January 2015 again a CT-scan has been made wich showed a huge increase in bone growth in the inner ear and the middle ear, compairing to the Scans from Janary 2014 and 2006.
My otologist was very surprised: The CT-scan showed a succesfull surgery, so he asked me which drugs i took. Soon he concluded that the drug Rivaroxaban (Xarelto), which I was using one whole year during that same period,was the responsible cause for this devastating bone groth.
There is no way back. The damage is irreversable. The only solutieon left for me is a cochleair implantation.
So now I am looking fot medical evidence to be able to get some compensation from the Bayer Company.
