I"ve had two injections of Heparin and today I feel nauseated, fatigued, and just not myself. I also have bright pink circles where the injections went in.
I have googled the side effects for Heparin, and I have a couple of them - these two. So I called my family doc, and my surgeon's nurse. They both said that I might just be a little more sensitive to this brand of Heparin. There are a bunch of other symptoms to watch out for, none of which I have. I'm freaking out because of what happened to me when I listened to the nurse regarding the fever I had when I was taking that seizure med 15 months ago. Following her advice nearly ended my life. I'm panicking.
This nausea also feels the same if my Fibro or lupus is active. So I don't know what to do. Has anyone had experience with Heparin and side effects? If I don't take this tonight, I likely won't be able to have my surgery on Wednesday. But I don't want to end up in the ER tonight either.... This is a gong show. My life is a gong show.
