Shoulder pains and aches

Posted , 3 users are following.


Hope everyone is well. I was wondering does anyone get shoulder pain or heaviness for taking rivaroxaban or any other ones ? The last few weeks I've had and it isn't getting any worse it's just constant feels like it's in my arm sockets and upper chest.

    I'm glad you've brought this one up James as I have similar sensations in those areas. I have one in the middle/left of my back which I've just put down to me getting back into work which involves a lot of manual lifting. I've spoken to the doctors about this and they haven't seemed concerned about it at all. I also get almost pin prick feelings which come and go quite often in my arms, shoulder, chest and lower rib areas. My right leg also feels heavy at times and the first time that happened, and with it been the same leg I had the initial DVT in, I went to the hospital and had a doppler scan of my leg done and thankfully it came back all clear. Of course paranoia sets in straight away but I've kind of learnt to live with it now. Before any of this happened to me I was never one to take tablets so I've not really thought of the link between medication and the feelings I'm getting . I'm due to fly on holiday on Wednesday after getting the all clear to do so, so hopefully I'll return with no problems to report and I'll see how these pains are after two weeks of relaxation and stress free.
