Heparin pain at inj. site on rt side of stomach 3 weeks

I had two Heparin shots in the rt and lt side of my stomach while in the hospital ER for what was thought to be a heart attach. it was not. My question is that the first shot given to me on the rt side of my stomach still hurts today as much as it did a couple days after the shot. I have NO problem with the shot given on the lt side. There is slight swelling on the rt side but nothing else showing. I have taken 500mg naproxen (prescribed) and tylenol 500mg with no relief. I guess I want to find out if this is normal and if so how long it will last. ## Is it possible the the shot given to me was put into a muscle? It has been 3 plus weeks since the shot and it hurts now even worse than at the time of the shot was given. What would happen if it were given into a muscle? ## Experiencing pa...

Heparin symptoms and side effects

I am getting a lot of nausea, slow heart beat, very hot hands and hot face, occasional sharp, sudden pin like sensation - also weirdly getting 3 day binge hangover "delicate" feeling which I never get unless I have actually enjoyed the aforesaid. But I dont' want to stop taking as I am on day 3 following DVT treatment. I am taking the DM version of Heparin - self-injecting. Did anyone else suffer from similar symptoms? ## My mom was given heparin in the hospital and her hemoglobin dropped to 8.3 and her liver enzymes started elevating. Should that medicine be stopped because of liver enzymes?

Heparin induced Thrombocytopenia in 2010

My stepfather died of HITT in 2010. I recently read about the huge recall in 2008. Is it possible that there is/was still contaminated lots out there? And who would I take this to other than the FDA? from what Ive read theyre not doing a very good job on their findings. ## No, it is highly unlikely that there were still contaminated lots on the market 2 years later, even if there were, you'd have to have some way to prove it. And there really is no one else to take it to, unless you are planning on filing a legal claim, which isn't likely since you aren't a direct relative. I am, however, very sorry for your family's loss. Are there any other questions or comments?
