There is no way really to say what is going on.
I have never seen coumadin cause pain throughout the body, not in 20 years.
No heparin products.
If there are no other symptoms, it is not likely from the coumadin.
I would have her immediately assessed.
That said, coumadin has been known to cause abdominal pain.
It has been known to cause joint pain.
Very rarely would it cause generalized pain.
It is not likely that more than one different type of blood thinner in a row would cause pain.
Hence, pain assessment is needed.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
