Excessive Menstrual Bleeding From Coumadin?
I am just now recovering from extreme menstrual bleeding starting June 2, 2006 with some spotting today. The result has been major weakness, fatigue and a lot of pain when I move. Even walking from one room to another is a painful chore and I've always been a highly active person. I'm also anemic and take good iron supplements but it looks like I need much more.
I am on Coumadin at 10 mg and my last INR was between 1.4 - 1.6 (low) . I got a blood draw a few days ago when I dragged myself to the clinic but I don't know the results yet.
Can such a low INR reading cause so much bleeding? I thought the blood had to be too thin with a high INR reading. I also have swelling in my legs and feet (edema).
