I've been on xarelto for 21 days (had a PE), started with my leg would go numb (painfully prickly feeling) even while laying in the bed. Now have cramps in both calves and feels like legs weigh 300lbs each. It's like I've lost muscle and can barely lift them. I don't see this listed as a side affect, but could it be?
How do I manage pain medication while on Xarelto?
When I was 15, I had DVT in my left leg that lead to a small case of PE. 19 days in the hospital lead to learning I had May Thurner's syndrome, Factor V Leiden, and Factor II prothrombin mutation. They placed a stent to deal with the May Thurner's syndrome and I had a Gunther Tulip filter for some time. They also started me on Coumadin. The filter was later removed. After several years of taking my 3.0mg of Coumadin daily and getting my blood drawn for PT/INR levels monthly, my arms had developed a good bit of scar tissue. My veins didn't like the constant poking and prodding. So my hematologist just recently switched me to Xarelto at age 18. I've always had rather painful cramps on my monthly lady-time, if you get what I mean, and I'm uncertain as to what kind of pain medication I could use to manage that. I know better than to use NSAIDs, acetaminophen, and naproxen, etc., but I don't know what I CAN use. If any of you have any insight on that, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
