Possibly: Many causes or triggers of migraine which can include anxiety. If you can keep an episode diary looking for triggers and try to minimize stress that would be a place to start. If there is any symptoms that mimics stroke, you would want to make sure it is not a tia-get checked.

You may not know...: It is easy to feel overwhelmed as a new mother--reach out! i would recommend speaking with your obstetrician or social worker at the hospital you had delivered at and informing him/her of your current state of mind and how you are feeling. You should not feel ashamed to talk with your family or doctor about how you are feeling nor should any of your symptoms be dismissed or taken lightly.

Depression history: The most common risk factors for post-partum depression are a previous or current treatment for clinical depression, or a family history of clinical depression. However, many women with no risk factors may see their "baby blues" progress to something more...And they should not hesitate to contact their OB for treatment.

Inderal (propranolol): 20 mg. Is a low dose. Not sure how many times a day it is prescribed, but as long as you had no problems with your blood pressure, skipping one dose should be ok. Inform your doctor if any symptoms occur.

See your doctor: If this has been going on a long time, it is likely migraines but if it is relatively new, see your doctor to make sure it is not something more dangerous. Also, he or she may be able to help you either prevent these episodes, make them less frequent, or at least treat them so they resolve sooner.
