Question Confused - so far had 4 clots in upper limb

Anybody have insight into my dilemma as doctors here are very confused.

Just been discharged from hospital again after being in for investigations for a week due to blood clot.

I started to get blood clots in 2006 in my left upper subclavian and axillary veins. I was on warfrin and clexane injections most of that time but my inr's are not always stable. I am on multiple medications for a whole lot of other medical conditions to complicate the matter. I was told it is very rare top develop this clot in these viens and even rarer to get them when already on therapeutic treatments. I have had four clots now in the same area. Doctors and myself are unable to find a reason into this condition. All tests to date have been negative.

Please leave comments on similar conditions
