My wife stopped taking her birth control pills (tri-norinyl) about a month and a half ago. Almost as soon as she stopped taking them, she started getting near-constant headaches. She describes them as dull, and they take place in various locations in her head, but mostly around her forehead and the top of her head. She says that they go away occasionally, but they are there almost all day long, every day.
She went to see her family doctor today, and the doctor scheduled her for an MRI with the contrasting agent. As an admitted semi-hypochondriac, I'm kind of freaking out about this, even though it's obviously best to get the MRI done and know one way or another (which we are definitely going to do).
Her doctor dismissed the idea of her discontinuation of the birth control as a possible reason for the headaches; yet, my limited online research seems to indicate that it could be a reason. I guess it would make me feel better if a second opinion at least said that, yes, the headaches could be possible from some sort of withdrawal symptoms from not taking her pills anymore.
Any advice would definitely be appreciated.
