Had DVT's x 3 and PE x 2. Was on warfarin for 14 years and 4 weeks ago started Rivaroxoban. The day I stared the new Riva i had dvt like pain in my calf i figured it was because my inr was at 1 and then started Riva, anyway left pain was there for about 5 days into it and then went so assumed the Riva started its job.
Fast forward to the last 7 days, ive been getting crushing upper back pain during the day and sharp pain breathing in on my left shoulder blade, chest stabs when leaning forward and back left shoulder when breathing in, the upper back pain comes on during the day but worst at night. Seem to be a little breathless not a lot and had a naggjng dry cough a fortnight ago. Was at the Dr yesterday, said lungs are clear, oxygen and bpm was fine even though bpm was 97! Back pain feels like trapped gas but in my back, and strained muscle feeling. Dr said its my posture at work!! (I dont believe that)
What should I do? Likely to have a PE whilst on Riva or am I dealing with something more sinister like lung cancer??
Im 36 female and on 20mg Riva for 4-5 weeks
