I landed in the emergency room this morning. I was sitting at my desk reading the computer screen and BAM...felt like someone just came and pushed my forehead as quick and hard as they could. Of course...no one did. I felt really strange for a while. Realized my right leg was going numb. Got up with the walker and thought to walk it off...but I couldnt walk right..it was dead numb. Called the docs office...sent me to the emergency room.
They run the battery of tests...come back in and say well...your INR is fine...it is 2.2 so even if it was a TIA you should be good.
I explained what my doctor was thinking that coumadin doesnt work for me...coumadin failure...and he said that everything looks ok. I am so beside myself. He said looks like my leg just fell asleep more than it usually might.
I explained about Hughes/APS....needing a HIGHER INR...and if not I have these symptoms...and if you arent going to allow it higher than do something for me!!!!!!!! They discharged me and said if the symptoms get worse to go back....I told them if I was dying I wouldnt go back.
