    DVT & Xarelto

    I have been on Xarelto for several years. Before that, I was on Warfarin and my Dr couldn't keep my levels good. I was having to change my dose every week or 2. I haven't had any problems since I've been on Xarelto, but my foot up to my knee, have been bothering me for almost 2 weeks. It's the same pain I felt when I had a DVT in 2012. I went to the ER and the Dr didn't even look at my foot or leg. He said that my bloodwork showed no indicators of a blood clot. So with the pain in my leg and my BP running too low (last time it was checked, it was 75/57), he sent me home. I have a follow-up appt with my Dr tomorrow. Does anyone know if you are on Xarelto, and the bloodwork come back with no indicators, could there still be a DVT? I almost died from PE in 1999, so I am worrying myself afraid I may have a blood clot and I don't want it to move to my lungs or anywhere else. Hope someone can answer my question. Thanks.
