    My Doctor Says...

    A few years ago I nearly died from a dozen blood clots that broke free in my left leg and found their way into all four quadrants of my lungs. This time I went in earlier. Once again I had blood clots forming in my left leg.

    I went to see a specialist. We had a frank discussion about whether I was at fault of my meds might be. In all the years I have been taking a blood thinner I have missed taking three doses at the right time. So it isn't me.

    Two days ago I started a new blood thinner. When I lie down my abdomen hurts, I have what appears to be a severe case of acid reflux. It keeps me from sleeping. The first night I lay awake most of the night. Last night I got up and played Warcraft for three hours.

    I also noticed I have small bruises on my hands and arms.

    To rule out other possible causes I cut way back on my food intake today and restricted myself to one glass of wine. If it continues to be a problem I will call my specialist on Monday. If this thinner fails I will have to administer shots. Ugh.

    My mom is on a new blood thinner and she has occasional abdominal pain with it. The "thinners" don't thin so much as they mostly just keep blood from coagulating . Much like aspirin

    This one defeats a different protein than the last one. It is also more dangerous.

    Be careful with your meds. Especially if you are taking pain meds in the fake opiate crisis class

    I take very few medications. I do take acetaminophen.

    I had no problem sleeping. I will repeat yesterday's experiment again today.

    Sounds like you are staying on top of it and will call tomorrow if it persist. Just follow through with your own plan,
