Lupus Anticoagulant

I have lupus anticoagulant syndrome,I am on coumadin,inrs are inconsistant,should i be on any other meds to prevent clotting? can I develop clots even though I am on coumadin?I have many symtoms (symptoms) and history of blood clots in the ivc,femoral vein and lungs,I have been having pains in my neck that feel like it's in the vein,do I need to be concerned?

They should be testing your blood regularly to make sure the dose of coumadin you're on is appropriate and still working properly (and not too well, either).

I think if you are having any concerns, you should totally check in with your doc asap.

I to have had DVTs Clots in my lungs as well .. I am tested weekly do the fact that my inrs are never in the 2.5 to 3 range like they should be I will go from as low as a 1.1 to a 9.7 for no reason.  I am a creature of habbit as to what I eat and do not add new meds.

You know your body best, trust in your instinct. if need keep a gernal so you and your doctor can go over it.

This is your life and is better to ask questions now instead of when you can't
