I know a 38 YO woman who, as soon as she stopped breast feeding her child in 2000, began with frequent abdominal pains diagnosed by specialists as abdominal migraines. They occur at random intervals of every 1-3 months, with no common triggers noted on carefully diary keeping.
Multiple treatments have failed so far and she is a reliable and conscientious person.
Could there be any relationship between hormones with stopping breast feeding, and the onset of this condition that should be explored?
Migraines are often liked to hormones.
Usually the drop in estrogen the female body goes through at the beginning of pregnancy, but these levels should return and go up after breast feeding is stopped.
She might be having the opposite effect, honestly anytime your body goes through a hormonal change it is a physical stress to the body which can trigger migraines.
She should consult her doctor.
