I've been taking Warfarin for a stroke that occurred 19 years ago. Earlier, I had Myocarditis and congestive heart failure, both of which were treated and cured. The following year I developed unexplained Raynaud's Phenom.-- no reason was ever discovered. After Raynaud's was somewhat under control, I had a Stroke that destroyed a portion of my Visual Field. I've been taking Warfarin for 19 years. My PC suddenly, and without reason, decided at my last visit, he doesn't want to manage Warfarin therapy any longer. In fact, according to the Clinic where my levels are monitored, he has long refused to manage anyone who is on Coumadin therapy. He told me he wrote the Rx as a favor to me, but no more. He was quite abrupt about it but gave me no reason. The Clinic therapist told me that according to state law, Primary Care providers are the doctors who must write the prescriptions. This PC, who as routinely misdiagnosed me (and others) sent me to a Neurologist for an evaluation. Based on information sent by the PC, the new neurologist told me to just stop Warfarin. So I did. Oddly, I developed severe hiccups for 5 days and nights. No explanation for the hiccups which were actually quite painful. So, on my own, I started back on Warfarin, went back to the Coumadin clinic, where I've been monitored for years. They are once again monitoring my blood levels because they still have a current Rx. That Rx will expire soon, so I feel I must find someone who will listen to me. (My former Rheumatologist is retired so I cannot see him). During my first and only consultation, I handed the new neurologist a copy of my family history, which he looked at and dismissed as not necessary because the info has nothing to do with Atrial Fibrillation. (I never had A Fib-- was never diagnosed with A Fib.). There seems to be a hereditary factor (in my unschooled but well researched) opinion. A sudden discontinuance of Warfarin after being on the therapy for going on 20 years seems to be a frivolous and dangerous step to take. I have two unexplained episodes that were troublesome enough for my former Rheumatologist to put me on Warfarin and keep me on it for the 17 years when I was his patient. Once I began Warfarin therapy, my health has been much improved. My Raynaud's has been much easier to control, I've had NO episodes of dizziness, stumbling, numbness or tingling in my hands, and I've had no further incidences of stroke. Both of those episodes have never been explained. The Rheumatologist who treated me researched extensively but never found any explanations or conclusions why I had either problem. He did think it might have had something to do with a Protein problem in my blood. Additionally, there was never an explanation for the Myocarditis. The cardiologist at the time speculated that I must have had an undiagnosed infection of some type, although he was unsure. The PC has made several misdiagnoses over the years, and often forgets from one visit to the next about some of his decisions to discontinue treatments he has started. (I'm looking for a new PC). I am quite worried. Has anyone had similar experiences?
