I have been on Xarelto since switching from Cumadin a month ago and about a week ago I had sharp pains in my chest then three days ago I had an irregular fast heartbeat on the lower right side of my heart for about 30 minutes. Once that was over I had wheezing in my chest for the next 12 hrs with severe fatigue and was very exhausted feeling lots of pain in my chest. I was wondering if anyone has had a blood clot while on xarelto. I am having lots of tests done to diagnose what happened, but I believe it was another blood clot due to my symptoms
Has anyone experienced a PE while on Xarelto?

This is my argument about these new anti coagulants you can't tell if they are working or working too well until something happens. It would be possible of course for you to clot, stranger things have happened. It is also possible it wasnt a clot. Other things could have caused the symptoms. Let us know when you get the results of the tests please.
I have. I have been on Xarelto since I left the hospital a little over a month ago. I just had another CT scan done on Monday. I had several on my right lung and that is completely gone but I now have a small one at the bottom of the left side of my lung. Going to my lung specialist tomorrow to find out what happened.
I have been on Rivaroxaban 20mg a day for a 16-18 months. Yesterday, i found out that i have new clots developing again in the same places- around the knees. The hospital also want to do a ct scan to determine if i may have cancer causing the clots despite taking blood thinners regularly. In the meantime, I have now been put on clexane 85m and warfarin a day. They want to move me to warfairn due to the costs and lack of anti bleeding effect with rivaroxaban.
Has anyone been in similar situation before?
I have been on Xarelto for 4 weeks now for a DVT after a sclerotherapy. My doctor told me I should be on Xarelto for 3 months total. My blood clot is attached high in my tigh. I now have pain in my lower leg. I fear another blood clot. I'm 40 years old and do not genetic predisposition for clotting. I was told to wear progressive compression stockings 20-30 every day. Today I did not wear them since I was home and thought I don't need them. Now the pain concerns me a lot. Also, I'm afraid what will happen to me after I get off Xarelto??
