Hi, I've had APS since 1998 been on warfarin mostly but been on Rivaroxiban for about a year and a half. I have experienced headaches, aches in my arms and light headed. Most recently i was suffering from hayfever so i took hayfever tablets for about a week because i was working out doors alot, but as soon as i came off the hayfever tablets i have felt awful. I had a really bad cough and running nose for a week and a half, now seem to have cleared that but since Sunday night i have been feeling worse again.
I am now experiencing painful aches in chest, upper back and my left wrist and right elbow which seem to come on randomly at the same time but about one every hour (has been waking me up all night for two nights now). Feel really hot when the pain comes on and i have a slight pain in my lower back. These last for about 1-5mins, i have to stand and take deep breaths to make the pain go away.
Could i have damaged something through coughing alot?
Could it be Asthma? related?
Or is this just a side effected of the rivaroxiban?
Visited local GP and she said, my heart is good, my blood ox is good, my chest sounds clear
Has anyone felt similar to this or any advice?
Cant get appointment with my speacialist until september.
