GAStrointestinal. Severe PAIN starting in middle of chest and wrapping around to middle of back. Tests showed inflamation in stomach and I am now on a bland diet indefinately. Also had trouble swallowing pills and food. I was diagnosed with DIABETES type II in Nov. 09, but since I've been off Plavix my sugar has normalized. I can't find this anywere as a side-effect... just wondering? Also suffer with ANEMIA and low platelets with no explanation, dizziness, sharp PAINs in my feet and ankles.
