Discussions that mention vioxx

General Health board

go to another and get another opinion.
it would help if u went for an ultrasound and xrays of your chest and legs.
i had a really stiff, swollen and painful right leg late last year . for a month i couldnt stand up straight and i went to 2 doctors and both said i had muscle strains. then i went to another doctor. he said the same thing and gave me vioxx. it didnt calm down my muscle pain so i went back to him, went for an ultrasound and it confirmed i had developed Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)....
your situation sounds really serious , especially if its going up in the arm and chest.
ge it checked out. cos u never know if the clot (if thats what it is ur experiencing) will go up to the brain and cos brain damage.
