Depends: The INR is a measure of how thin your blood is. When alcohol effects your INR it is causing your blood to become more thin. A low INR means that your blood is thicker. A high INR means your blood is thinner. If your INR is too low i.e. Too thick i.e. Not anticoagulated, then there are treatment options to anticoagulate including an injectable medications.

Yesterday I had my 46 removed (ISO). Would alcohol-based pain relievers affect blood coming the toothles alveole? What pain reliev. Are non alcoholic?

Also, when you say "alcohol-based" pain relievers do you mean topical pain relievers or are you asking if it is ok to consume alcohol with pain relievers? If you can repost your question, it will be easier to answer. Thank you! ...Read more

Dull pain right testacle, no blood in pee, not SEVERE pain, so no torsion? No lumps or bumps eiter? Can I take pain relievers?

Dull pain right testacle, no blood in pee, not SEVERE pain, so no torsion? No lumps or bumps eiter? Can I take pain relievers?

Diagnosis first: Before we start talking about pain relievers beyond just Tylenol (acetaminophen) or an anti-inflammatory we need a diagnosis. Either you have become an Internet researcher or your MD told you, that torsion is unlikely. However, if you have only seen your PCP, I would recommend a thorough Urological evaluation. You should not have dull pain there on your own short of delayed ejaculation and should be seen/imaged. ...Read more

Why are some clots difficult for the body to break down? Blood thinners are used to thin blood, which aids in the natural anticoagulation, correct?

An example may help: Heart-attacks are frequently caused by the rupture of a plaque in an artery in the heart. A clot forms over the injury but this also occludes the vessel that supplies part of the heart. The clotting system is responding properly to vessel damage and doesn't know that the clot is iinjurying the heart. Blood thinners can break up clots like this allowing blood to flow back to the heart. ...Read more
