Dear Penny
The warfarin only prevents abnormal clots from forming but I agree, you need to speak to your doctor as you could maybe start using an alternative like 1/2 Disprin or Plavix instead. Stopping the medication altogether could put you at risk for another lung embolism. There may also be something else the matter and your doctor may need to look for other problems too.

Hey Penny,
Did they recently check your BP? I just remembered someone who was with me in hospital described her high blood pressure exactly the same way you describe the feeling of blood going to your head...
Hope you get better! Regards Ruby
