I've had quite a week!
I was taken into hospital last Saturday night.
I had a really severe head pain. Phoned 111 for advice and they sent ambulance!!
I had CT scan. All ok. Then had to have a lumbar puncture to check that there were no signs of a brain bleed. Thankfully there was no sign. It turns out I had a thunderclap migraine!
Which was outrageously painful!
Was discharged last Sunday I've been in bed since then with a painful head.
I was told that it could be a side effect of the HRT. Or could possibly the prostap. This is really disappointing because I felt like I was getting on so well with the treatment. Finally today (seven days since it happened) the headache has subsided. I still feel a residue of it though. I'm exhausted and still feel like I can't be up for long.
Has anyone else experienced this? It was extremely painful and quiet frightening being whisked off into hospital so quickly. Bloody marvellous NHS care though. Very grateful for that.
