Soory for the long post but there is a story leading to the question:
2 weeks ago I had a d&c for heavy and clotted menstrual cycles. A week later I ended up in the ER due to dramatically large clots and bleeding. The OBGYN on call was a doc that clashed with the ER doc. Despite me being symptomatic of hemorrhage and the ER doctor feeling I needed immediate surgery, the OBGYN decided to send me home because my hemoglobin was at the low end of normal. So I went home and continued to get worse. I got to the point of blacking out several times, my bp dropped, I was laboring to breath and my coloring was that of a person in a casket. The following day the bleeding and clots slowed and my color slowly was regaining. Though it was a horrifying event, I made it through. Since I lost so much blood I immediately put myself on Iron and vitamin C supplements. A week later, this past Thursday, I went in for my follow up. The nurse practitioner immediately did a finger ***** hemoglobin in me and found that I was very low at a 7. So despite my efforts with supplements, I was quite anemic.
Here is my question: I did not share with her that I had a migraine because I figured it was just one of my cluster headaches that usually turns into a migraine. I figured I would just go home and take something and be fine. Well here it is, day number 4 and I have yet to find relief. The pain is different. It is staying in one place. It is on the top right front side of my head. My right eye is very photo sensitive at this point. And I am finding the need to constantly put pressure on the painful area. When I am laying down I can constantly hear my blood flow in my ears. The pain is making it difficult to sleep. Is it possible that this is related somehow? I really don't want to go back to that ER after how things went last time. Any suggestions?
