My INR has dropped to 2.3 and I feel dreadful. In fact I have done for some months.
In September I was transferred from hospital monitoring to monitoring at my pharmacy. Since then my INR has been below 3.
I have Lupus, Sjogrens Syndrome and Fibromyalgia as well as Hughes but have been particularly ill since INR dropped.
My legs hurt deep in the muscles and I'm finding it difficult to walk at all. My legs give way without warning and I keep falling. I've had a battery of tests from MRI & X-Ray's to nerve & muscle tests. All inconclusive.
I have started to suffer from headaches again and over the last 2-weeks the most horrendous constant one ever. Today I couldn't remember my own phone number or PIN number. I'm also having chest pains. And blurred vision as well as fatigue, I'm exhausted once showered I need a sleep. I need to sleep on and off all day and it's all taking my life away.
I'm now taking 19mg of Warfarin 5 days a week and 18mg twice a week.
A bit of history: I suffered a headache to some degree every single day from 1978 (aged 11) until diagnosed and treated with aspirin about 4 years ago (2012) After 2 years the headaches returned and after a suspected blood clot on my brain 18 months ago I was put on Warfarin and once the INR hit 3 the headaches vanished!
I need support and to know whether these symptoms are connected to low INR?
