Yes I am on gabapentin for neck pain and arm numbness that I have had since 1/2021 due to suspected Covid. Also on ONDANSETRON for constant nausea. I am in a Long Covid program and they ordered the tests but didn’t really tell me why beyond trying to figure out ongoing symptoms. I am 52.

Ok thank you. I’m just curious why the clotting ability would be higher?
Or is it just not something to worry about?
