      Hello

      I'm 13 weeks in, you will have days that are good and bad it's natural. I also get random breathless stages through sleep in wouldn't worry to much about it. I'm pretty sure it's the medication.

      Hope you get better

    Hi jhona,

    Yes I would recommend you go and see your doctor, Xarelto has many side effects and a lot of doctors will tell you that it is a well tolerated drug, maybe it is but there is some of the population worldwide that experience these "uncommon" side effects, I was one of them, after taking Xarelto 1 - 2 hours later I would have chest pain that took me to our emergency department, noone would believe me except for the nursing staff. I use to take Xarelto of a morning and everytime, on average 1 1/2 hours later I got chest pain and breathlesness, I swapped taking the morning dose to the evening after consulting with a pharmacist, daytime chest pain stopped and 1 1/2 hours later after taking Xarelto in the evening I got chest pains and breathlesness, the doctors still said "no it's not the Xarelto " A nurse told me to do some digging around and print out any literature that indicated chest pain bought on by Xarelto, I also found a short list that Xarelto can also bring on angina attacks, very uncommon with a low percentage rate but the fact of the matter is Xarelto can cause it according to research. My GP took me of Xarelto and put me on Pradaxa, no more chest pains 1 - 2 hours after taking it, still get breathless though but that is part and parcel of having pulmonary embolisms , I'm also not as tired / fatigued as I was on Xarelto.

    I am on Coumadin and if that happened to me I would consult my Dr. I am on my 7th month and have been to the hospital once with chest pains and they kept me overnight but my heart was clear and then I went back one other time because of the same thing. I think so my mind was due to anxiety and they put me on Xanax once a day as well as an antidepressant. And I still have some shortness of breath but it's not so bad. But I would check with my doctor about it

      I have no idea as I had always been very active. I have been a long-distance Walker all of my life doing things like the coast to coast across England three times and 900 miles on the Camino through France and all across spain. I had been sick with what they thought was bronchitis for a couple of weeks and just laid around those weights because I had no energy but that was the only time I've ever done that. My mother had a DVT when she had her first child and I don't know if I have inherited a predisposition for it or not but I will be checked in the coming months when I can get off of Coumadin long enough to do the test . Right now I am dealing with my INR levrls and still go back to the doctor every week or so to have my level checked. So empathize with you in your fright. That we who have survived pulmonary embolisms are in a special group of people who are so thankful to be alive and yet afraid that this is going to happen again. Our Lives will never be the same because of that. I will pray for you as I pray for myself for a total healing or if not that with the medications that will keep us healthy.

      Oh honey I am so sorry cuz I know how scared you are as I have been there. So if I think it was a med that was given you the heart pain? I went through a bad period of things like that and I had a couple of days where my blood pressure was 165 over 104 and that kind of stuff and they put me on a beta blocker. I was convinced that I had what they call pulmonary hypertension because I had five of the six symptoms but thankfully I did not have it is that is very very very serious. That's when they put me on the antidepressant because it always works for anxiety. But the beta blocker brought my blood pressure right down so I guess I will be on it. I think you are three months after your clots? I bet you that this new medicine will straighten things out for you but if not keep on with your doctor and do what he says but listen to your own body. Let me know how you feel tomorrow okay

      No, but they help my anxiety because they got my blood pressure down out of the range where I would be considered to have high pulmonary hypertension. I am on Xanax for the first time in my life and then I am on an antidepressant which is for the anxiety too. But I think the Xanax helps more than anything.

      Oh honey, that is AWFUL. Were you having surgery for a blood clot? So the anesthesiologist gave you the wrong medicine and put you in a coma. I am speechless. What were you in surgery for? Did you have pulmonary embolisms also?

      I am on to things for blood pressure and one is Diovan and one is a beta blocker but I can can't remember the name but I will find it and let you know. But actually I'm not sure how much the blood pressure had to do with my clot because the pulmonary hypertension I was so worried about is not normal hypertension and my normal blood pressure medicine would not bring it down and that's when I went on the beta blocker and that brought it down
