I started taling xarelto 5/10/2014 after my 2nd DVT in my leg. The first DVT was in February 2013 and I was on xarelto until September of 2013. I had no major side effects. Today I woke up with a black eye. My eye was itchy the last few days and I am not sure if I rubbed it. The bruise runs from the corner of my eye, near where my eyeglasses rest and under the eye. No one hit me and I did not walk into anything. My vision is fine but my nerves are stressed. Does this sound serious? It's Sunday and so I can't talk to my Hemotologist.

Hello, Mele! How are you doing?

Have you had this checked out, yet?

That sudden bruising might be the sign a dangerous level of blood thinning, so you need to be very careful.

What dose do you take? Have you taken Aspirin or any other NSAIDs recently?

I have been trading messages with the nurse at the Hemotoligist's office. They basically said if it worsens to not take my nightly dose of xarelto (20mg) and the doctor will need to see me. I'm reporting in daily. Only change is the swelling has gone done...still have the purple bruise. No aspirin or NASAID at all. I made the mistake of the aspirin last year. I have an appointment with my primary care doctor tomorrow. I don't expect much because she told me last year, I'm her only patient takiing the drug and she knows nothing about it. I check in with the Hemotoligist again in the am. No other bruising.
