    Any blood thinner you take will cause you to bruise more easily.  Very common side affect.

      Thanks Suzanne,

      They are spots some as big as a pin head some as big as a drawing pin head and I get them all over me.

      they only look like a bruise if I knock myself.

    I would check with the doc who prescribed the blood thinner just to put your mind at ease.

      Hi Suzanne,

      Took your advice and managed to get hold of the Arrhythmia  nurse at the hospital and she said I need to be seen and to contact my GP on Monday, especially as I am experiencing other symptoms.

      Thank you

      Hi Suzanne,

      Saw Locum GP this morning he was onto it straight away, and immediately put things in place to take me off Rivaroxaban and back on warfarin, he said at least we can monitor that, and concluded that all the health problems I have been experiencing in the past few months were down to my intolerance of Rivaroxaban.

      Just have to wait now for app. with anticoag nurse.he had INR done you have to take both apparently for about 3 days,

    Could be caused by the blood thinner but also could be just cherry angioma which are more common as we age or put on weight and are very noticeable on very pale skin.
