I've been on warfarin a few years, and from time to time experience pain/swelling my my feet. Think this is usually happens due to rubbing one of my foot veins against my shoes & the fact I have different clotting/circulation from an average person not on warfarin. Does anyone know how to effectively reduce this swelling/pain? Thanks
I dont klnow if this will help but it helped me, When i was pregnant my feet and ankles sweeled really bad, I slept with my legs up on two & three pillows, trying to get them above my heart, and it worked. I still sleep like that till this day, it is so comfortable now. I can't sleep any other way. There is also a water pill that a friend of mine takes for swelling. If you have a Prinary Car Physician ask what meds you can take and why they are swelling., if it is the vein rubbing on your shoe that is causing it.
