I am 24 with a factor five blood deficiency and been diagnosed with hemochromatosis.  I am on blood thinners for three years (Xeralto 20mg a day) after having a PE and DVT.  For about a year I have been feeling a sharp unbearable pain below the right side of my rib cage.  I understand my liver is located in that area and am worrying of any liver problems.  My blood shows I have a high iron count. Other symptoms are irritability and forgetfulness.  Also I feel tired a lot with a lot of joint pain.

Have you been checked for May-Thurner Syndrome? It is one of the most common causes of DVT and PE. I have it and it will cause irritability, memory problems, anxiety, fatigue, dizziness, pain all over body, headaches, migraines and just about any other problems. Some other vein compression syndromes that will cause the same problems are Nutcracker Syndrome, Wilkie Syndrome or Dunbar Syndrome. Hope this helps and feel free to private message me if you have any questions. Or want more info.
