I have been taking Apixaban for many months now (2.5mg twice a day) without any side effects.
However, for the past four days, I have been experiencing quite chronic right hand side lower back pain, that has caused me sleepless nights, tonight being one of them as I sit at my laptop at 03.00!
The pain has caused me to gasp for breath and is severe when attempting to get up from a sitting position. It affects my walking.
As I have not been engaged in any physical activity or anything unusual, I was wondering if I should seek medical advice to establish if this is a potential side effect of Apixaban.
Has anyone else taking Apixaban encountered such symptoms? I am hoping that it is totally unrelated!
