I was getting scared my blood was getting too thick. My veins are all puffy. Now tonight it is just very sore. I think I may need to be on coumadin? Have you guys had to be on it? I have read research that says it enables the drugs to enter the cellular level better. When does it become an emergency. I am one of those who can suffer through, but I don't want to die stoically. Thanks for any thoughts.

not sure about coumadin used as infection tx
adjunct. this is generally for blood thinning needed in presence of certain cardiac disorders where clotting is likely (ex:a-fib). I can tell you that coumadin has to be monitored very closely and can be dangerous if used without lots of lab follow up or if not needed. Veins felling puffy may be some fluid overload (too much water can be dangerous, salt also causes swelling) or increased blood pressure issues?? I can relate to episodes of numb/ pain to my entire arm that lasted most of one day, and happens freq to my hands as well. For me, this is related to neruopathy caused by Lyme hope that may help? -------------------- i am not a Dr. any info is only for education, suggestion or to think/research. please do not mis-intuprest as diagnostic or prescriptive, only trying to help. ** dx in 08:lyme, rmsf, bart, babs, and m.pneumonia.
