I was fitted with a pacemaker In NOV, 2015 and beg...

  • I was fitted with a pacemaker In NOV, 2015 and began taking
    Eliquis. Within a year my weight increased by over 40 pounds. Ultimately I was wheeled into the emergency room hardly able to breathe. They gave me a breathalyzer, didn't work.

    I was put on medication to reduce my water weight and lost 47 pounds in 2 weeks, normal breathing returned. My uric acid level increased to a dangerous and had to get of the diuretic medication, and gained 12 pounds back almost immediately. I got to the point I could hardly breathe and still have to problem and am generally miserable. I am now 83, but was a doing quite well before all this happened. My doctors say they don't know what's wrong. The diuretic cause a gout condition as well.
