Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches everyday in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

See below: Headaches are not normal. The cause is not easy to determine without additional history and physical examination. These may be due to tension and one way of getting around tension is by exercise. You may wish to start exercising, first thing in the morning. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Positive mthfr heterozygous after multiple miscarriages, known pernicious anemia, what is the likelihood of having other b vitamin deficiencies?

Positive mthfr heterozygous after multiple miscarriages, known pernicious anemia, what is the likelihood of having other b vitamin deficiencies?

Not more likely but: Pernicious anemia is due to problems absorbing B12 but doesn't interfere with absorbing other vits. Mthfr mutations mean you have trouble converting Folic Acid to the active form, so take l-5-mthf. Genes don't affect absorption of other b vits but due to genetics some require higher amounts of b's than others-your other issues don't mean you're more likely to have this but it's safe to try b complex. ...Read more

At 4wks pregnant, WBC 14.3, RBC 3.40, hgb 10.7, hct 31.7. Will anemia this early in pregnancy hurt baby or increase chance of miscarriage?

At 4wks pregnant, WBC 14.3, RBC 3.40, hgb 10.7, hct 31.7. Will anemia this early in pregnancy hurt baby or increase chance of miscarriage?

You can also try to increase iron by eating iron rich foods. It's always better if you can, to eat iron rich foods than take supplement. But will not increase risk for miscarriage or hurt baby unless hgb. ...Read more

Cycle after miscarry: After a miscarriage, the usual advice is to wait 3 months of cycling before trying again to make sure your body gets back to normal. This not unusual but I recommend that you review this with your doctor to make sure that all is well. You didn't describe the circumstances of your miscarriage so your dr would be able to make some sense out of this for you. ...Read more
