Throat And Neck Pain?
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve been experiencing throat and neck pain for some time. I can press on my neck, a little above my trachea, and will feel pain that also radiates to my right ear. Also, when I swallow liquid, I have a sharp pain in my throat and the back of my neck. The pain is present with solids but doesn’t radiate the same as with liquids. Oh, and it’s usually coupled with very tight trap muscles. Has anyone experienced this?

A MyLupusTeam Member

Thanks y’all! I hate that others experience this but I’m glad it’s not just in my head (which is how my doctors make me feel).

I'm Really Needing Advice Should I Take An Aspirin (81mg) Along With My Eliquis For 3mos Advised By My Doctor Due To Symptoms Of A (TIA)
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been on ELIQUIS for 17mos without any serious problem. I was rushed to the ER on 4 days ago (was admitted) for possible STROKE.

A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have APS/LUPUS and found out that I also suffer with TMJ. I am in need of oral surgery including an extraction. My dentist wants me off ELIQUIS for a couple of days prior to. My hematologist gave me a box of lovenox and told me to stop my eliquis and take the lovenox 4 days before the procedure.

Yes it is a common practice. They want to make sure you don't bleed out.

Covid FDA AUTHORIZED MEDS
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi My Warrior Brothers/Sisters, I have gotten COVID again; Thank GOD it's not as bad as the 1st time. However it still has me with a fever, chills, strong cough & sore throat. My PA prescribed me this new med called PAXLOVID, that is for High Risk covid positive patients. The doctor did tell me that it may increase the effects of My ELIQUIS; and for me to look out for signs of internal bleeding. So of course that makes me very skeptical. There's that plus the fact that it is NOT FDA APPROVED but… read more
