Bubs is just over 4 weeks old and exclusively breastfed. For the first week and a half after the birth I had a constant migraine that not even strong prescription pain killers would budge. It eventually subsided for a few days but now I get a headache every time I feed. As soon as I letdown, it's instant migraine. My vision is a bit funny too.
Has anyone else experienced this??
I've done a bit of research and found a bit of info which suggests a surge in oxytocin when letting down is the cause but it should subside during the feed. Mine don't. And coz bubs is a frequent feeder, I've pretty much constantly got a headache. My doctor wasn't helpful at all and basically said if it is hormonal then I've just gotta deal with it!!
I honestly don't know how much longer I can cope with being in pain. Bubs is a great feeder and is thriving and I don't want to stop feeding and deprive him of that, I just don't know what to do!!
Any advice, experiences or suggestions would be greatly appreciated :-)
