So, my INR today was 3.1. (2.0-3.0 is the target). All good, right? And then I came down with food poisoning. (Warning the rest of this post is gross). I've been sick all day and it's been violent and vile. I already took my Warfarin today. I don't know how food poisoning is going to affect things. I've been throwing up a LOT of pink stuff, but I'm thinking that has to be because I had ham and tomato soup and beets today. Blood would be red or black, right? And I'm burping what tastes like rotten eggs. It's so nasty. My stomach is bloated with gas and I won't go into the rest of the nastiness. Is this just the food poisoning, or is the Warfarin playing into it at all? Is there something I need to keep an eye on?
