Could it be migraine? You have my sympathy anyway- the drop in hormones gave me the mother of all migraines with DD. Awful when you have a newborn. Went straight back on progesterone pill which totally sorted it. Or try 900mg asprin- if u can take that...
Thanks, Patilla. They haven't checked my urine, no. I think you're right and it's probably a mix od tiredness and dehydration. I'm making sure I'm drinking plenty today and eating regularly and will see how I am in a couple of days.
I had my lovely DD 6 days ago. It was an uncomplicated VB, with gas and air and pethidine. Yesterday I got a bad headache which hasn't stopped since. I've taken some paracetamol but it doesn't really help. I'm breastfeeding. I had my blood pressure checked yesterday and it was higher than in pregnancy but still within the normal range. (I think 110/80)
I suffered with bad headaches after having DS but I was convinced they were a side effect of the epidural, which I didn't have this time.
Any experiences and ideas what could be causing them and how to help myself?
