I am taking Eliquis. I accidentally cut the top of my ear (I do not remember how) about three months. After a month I went to the a dermatologist, who told me that since it had a scab, not to worry about it. Well, the scab keeps coming off and here it is two months later and still it bleeds and now irritated from the band aid.

I had a successful ablation 2 months ago , my dr insist that I take e blood thinner Eliquis Which gives me side effects, muscle cramp legs, joint and itching, I am very active, biking, walking, hiking. I want to stop the blood thinner because of the excess bleeding if I scrape or cut my self. I feel the dr is erring on the safe side, Before the ablation If I had an irregular heart beat I knew it right away and would take aspirin. Aren t the % for stroke 3 for not taking any med, 2 for aspirin and 1 for blood thinners.

Eliquis is causing muscular weakness and numbing, at least I think it is eliquis, which I have just been taking a few weeks. Is this a danger, or just effect? I mentioned it to the doctor (the weakness, at the time I did not know the connection). He did not make any comment or connection. I will call him Monday. I will cut usage in half now.... that should not matter for 1 day
