Hi,
How are you? With DVTs , some people may have long-term pain and swelling in the leg known as post-phlebitic syndrome. Other symptoms like changes in skin color may also be present. Wearing tight compression stockings may help. Check with your doctor for proper ,management. Take care and do keep us posted how it goes.

Hi,
Many people using warfarin do not have serious side effects.However, this medication can cause serious bleeding and it is important to monitor your INR. Inform your doctor if there is presence of severe headache, dizziness, fainting, unusual or persistent tiredness, bloody/black/tarry stools, chest pain, shortness of breath, and difficulty swallowing. Were you able to go to a neurologist previously to evaluate your headache? A complete work-up and imaging studies such as MRI or CT scan would help determine if it is primary or secondary in nature. You could also have a headache journal to identify possible causes. Take care always.
