Following on from previous episodes of DVT's in my right calf and three instances of a PE I am now on Warfarin for life.
I had a DVT and PE in November.
Since taking the Warfarin (which I have been on before with no ill effects) I have been experiencing no end of problems and was wondering if they could be possibly associated with Warfarin (7.5 mg daily).
I experience shortness of breath, have had a cough since January, which a course of antibiotics did not help with, chest palpitations, chest pain and itchy legs.
I am seeing my GP on Friday to be reassessed.
Is there any possibility that such symptoms are a side effect of Warfarin?
I have been offered the opportunity to switch to Rivaroxabin.
