Warfarin doesn't seem to be helping me much these past few weeks - at target and above I still had slurred speech and weakness on the right side and my mouth had dropped and I was dribbling from the right side of my mouth again - nice eh? Too much information
Today my INR was 1.9
I am not sure if I have done the right thing but I asked about heparin as I feel so awful. My GP agreed that a prophylactic dose should be given over the weekend and then a repeat INR done on Monday. I am really not sure about it but I feel dreadful - hope I have done the right thing - as you know as I don't have a proven clot they do wonder whether I should be on warfarin but St T's had suggested heparin if I went too low. But then they started questioning whether I should be on warfarin. My rheumy up here wants me to stay on it as up until now it has helped. My GP just said well it won't harm you and it will probably help you a lot
So I learnt how to inject and must do so again over the weekend.
My GP wants a new MRI done and is trying to get my hospital appt up here brought forward. Am back at St T's in May - am dreading this as my rheumy up here has not followed their advice re the warfarin and I'm worried I shall be the scapegoat
If anyone has any advice for a newbie heparin injector I'd be grateful.
