since I was 14 I have had multiple chest surgeries including multiple pneumothoraxs,lung recessions, and removals due to AVM's and pulmonary embolisms in both of my lungs. I have been on coumadin since I was 20, but since recently I have not been able make my scheduled doctors visits for INR checks so I resorted to Pradaxa via recommendation from my pulmonary Doctor. I have been on it solid for about a week and a half, and honestly I have had bad stomach pains, inability to eat and mood swings because of it. Also increased bleeding when I cough up blood on occasion. I was told by my doctors this is normal, but it doesn't feel normal. Idk maybe just being a young guy paranoid. Thanks all!
