Sorry to post two questions at once!
Having had a super high IGg anitbody blood test for the second time my GP recommended I start aspirin while I wait for an appt with haem (which is now on Tuesday!). I
'd been taking a 75mg tablet with my evening meds for about 2 and a half weeks when I started getting bad stomach pain which was waking me in the night.
I stopped the aspirin, took my last dose Monday night- the 18th- for a couple of days to discover if it was that that was causing it- which it seemed to be- and thought I'd just leave off it for the next week or so until my appointment. I'd not noticed any massively improved symptoms pain-wise anyway and didn't think it was making much difference.
However over the past couple of days my (already 24/7) head pain became significantly more severe, to the point where I took a hefty dose of codeine yesterday (I'm meant to avoid painkillers whenever possible so as to avoid rebound/overuse headache) and spent the entire day in bed today with hideous 8/10 pain.
It dawned on me that maybe the Aspirin had been making a difference and I added it back in to my evening meds today to see if I noticed anything over the next few days. Now the pain is nearer a 6/10 a mere couple of hours later, but I have no idea if it could possibly have been the aspirin, or if it's just spontaneously subsided?
Any ideas/insights would be welcomed!
