Re: Blood clots in the head
Hi there Bluesky!
I wanted to let you know, this happened to me a couple years ago. IF there is any kind of chance your boyfriend has a blood clot in his head, you should find out for sure right away. I had one that had developed a couple years ago and I had awful headaches everyday, no appetite, ended up in the hospital overnight a couple nights because I could not hold anything down and was extremely dehydrated. The docs DID NOT do the right test so they didn't find it until I went into the hospital with a second one just 3 months ago. The 2nd one was much much worse. I was in the hospital for over 3 weeks.
The test they did to find the clots was an MRI with contrast (dye) to show the veins better. I have heard it can take a while to get one of these done so I suggest asking your doc about it soon. I don't want to scare you, I was very lucky that my first clot did not move for the two years and didn't cause more damage than just the headaches. My second one was worse and I was lucky that I was right near the hospital when it developed. The BEST thing you can do is: Act fast to find out if that is what it actually is! And if it turns out to be a clot, at least in my case, I am on blood thinners to help get rid of them. The one that developed in December is now completely gone, and took less than 3 months to go away.
I hope I helped, and GOOD LUCK! You will know soon either way how to take care of this!
