I think I suffer micro clots in my brain.
Horrific pain in a part of my head for minutes or up to an hour. That leaves me jaded and delicate with a worse headache.
I had already been diagnosed with APS and was on aspirin when I collapsed on holiday (for a wedding) in Turkey (a 4 & 1/2 hour flight in a 'leg room' seat). In a fantastic hospital I was seen by a cardiologist and neurologist. Rehydrated, chest X-Ray and had An MRI which showed I had a brain clot. O was treated with Clexane inj I finally flew back to the UK and into a local hospital.
Three days after the first MRI another showed no clot. Clexane was stopped. Hospital general consultants said that's not possible. The first MRI must be wrong.
I was put on Warfarin and the anti-coag consultant said I was probably having micro clots??? Can someone please explain what they are?
I'm sorry if I keep popping up asking questions. I'm not usually all me me me but after 39 years of these awful headaches and disabling symptoms, I finally have found people whe get it. I realise I'm not going mad. Such a relief. Ha ha. I'm so grateful for the support and hope I can support others in return. 💋
