Comment from: sanele, Female (Patient) Published: September 08

I gave birth in 2012 to a healthy baby girl through C-section and since then I have been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and I have been on and off taking warfarin tablets. Sometimes my leg swells up because now I have been off the medication for four months. I get cramps at night when am sleeping, whenever I try and stretch myself and also my toes are not functioning the way they are supposed to.
