i was diagnosed with a major dvt (blood clot) in my right leg february 4th and have now realised the muscle in my right hand is totaly gone.i was perscribed warfarin-coumadin and am taking the amount they told me, getting my blood tested twice a week, Ever since ive had the clot i felt a tingle in my fingers as if they where asleep. i can still use them but it with slightly less accuracy. as of recently when i noticed the loss of muscle in my hand i also started feeling like my right arm is alot heavier. please reply if u know anything i should be asking my doctor because ive had a couple of doctors and a handful of nurses dismiss these symptoms and i need help...

  • There was a recent recall of warfarin (coumadin). You need to find out if the drug you received was part of the recall as it was tainted and side effects have been reported.

  • Also, ask about this: rhabdomyolysis

  • Do you know why you had the DVT? Did they diagnose a clotting disorder or anything?A clotting disorder may predispose you to stroke, which could cause one-sided numbness, weakness, and subsequent muscle wasting.It might be worthwhile to see a neurologist who can figure this out for you.Best Wishes.
