Can consumption of warafin cause numbness in fingertips ?

I had my aortic valve replaced in July of this year then had complications with blood clots to my lungs. Am currently taking warafin and have developed numbness in my fingertips. At first it would come and go now it seems to be all the time. Is this a serious side effect of the medication?

Hello,

warfarin is not very likely to be causing this symptom. You'd better check with your doctor for other potential causes which may include carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical radiculopathy, peripheral neuropathy, etc. In any case doctors first exclude the most common causes before attributing a symptom to a rare side effect.

I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Kind Regards,
Dr Panagiotis Zografakis,
Internal Medicine Specialist
