Headache and Dizziness After Miscarriage

Q: I had a miscarriage 2 weeks ago. Ever since then sometime throughout the day I get a headache with a dizzy feeling. Is this something I should be concerned about or is my body just going through changes because of the miscarriage? Thank you!


Dr. Donnica:
I am sorry to hear about your miscarriage -- and your headache.  This is something you need to call your doctor about ASAP.  These feelings could be caused by a number of things: You may be anemic, you may have low blood pressure, or you may have a hormonal problem. 

In any event, you should have a check-up.  Any time you have a bad headache that doesn't resolve in 2 days despite self-medicating with acetaminophen (Tylenol) or other over-the-counter remedies, such as Excedrin or ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil or Anaprox), you should see your physician.  For more information on headache, click here.
