I've been taking Xarelto for about 60 days, and muscle soreness seems to be getting worse. I wake each morning with shoulder, arm and leg soreness. At 64 years old, I presumed it was just old age symptoms. I now suspect that this new medication might be the culprit. I must take the medication because of atrial fibrillation episodes from time to time. Is there a solution, or should I just learn to live with the pain? My suspicion includes potential internal damage from a drug that causes pain. Am I thinking correctly here??
You are right;
Less serious side effects of rivaroxaban may include:
pain in your arms or legs.
Musculoskeletal side effects have included pain in the extremities and muscle spasm.
I suggest you inform your Dr. asap.-
Hi Grant ll
I am currently on Xarelto for 3 months and experiencing very similar side effects .
Was wondering what you did and if you ever got any relief ? Did you change meds or did the pain subside ? get worse ? or go away after time?
Would really appreciate an update . I am similar in age and a male.
Thanks in advance for any info you can offer
