So, I'm on the blood thinner xarelto after dvt and pe about 6 weeks ago. Today I go in for a blood draw and the nurse jabs me in my hand but fails to get the blood. Needless to say I left. But for the past few hours I've had tingling in that specific left hand and it actually had began twitching. Should I be worried about another blood clot in my left hand now? Absolutely terrified.

I have been prescribed Xarelto 20 mg twice daily to treat a DVT. The DVT developed after a knee replacement surgery on Sept 29, 2014. I can find no other instances of this high a dosage for this type of blood thinning agent. What do you think about this dosage?
