Hi, My INR has to fall between 3.0-4.0 I have been getting DVT symptoms in my lower left calf. Is it possible to develop a DVT whilst on blood thinners?

It is possible if you also have another abnormality within your body's your clotting system as a whole. If you don't have a clotting disorder it can happen but is very rare. Still it is not something to ignore especially if is the same leg/arm in which you have had previous DVTs. You will also note that most of the time you will see that the leg in which you experienced a previous DVT will swell and tend to ache on occasion. If, however, it becomes extremely larger than the other leg, is hot, extremely painful, or blue foot or hand make sure that you have it checked out ASAP.

One thing that amazes me is the level your INR must remain unless you have had a heart valve replacement. Good Luck

Jaci, The reason my INR is so high is that i have Hughes syndrome, or Anti phospholipid syndrome.

Yes, it is. Call your doctor or go to the ER if need be. Especially if area becomes swollen, blue, or cold, no pulse!
