So, I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about what's going on here. A little background: I'm generally healthy, though I get very occassional migraines. I had a m/c in Sept. and hemmorrhaged REALLY badly. I was severly anemic for a long time, though now my blood tests are all finally normal. For a few weeks after the m/c I had an awful headache that my mw said was due to the anemia. It was better if I laid still, but got much worse with activity.

So now, for the last week or 2, I've had a similar headache every evening, from about 4pm until I go to bed. I've also had very brief periods of dizziness, more like the floor is moving under my feet. It hasn't happened more often than once a day, and not everyday. I've tried having more caffeine, less caffeine, drinking more water, getting more sleep, more exercise... Nothing has helped. Since the m/c I've been on iron and Vit. C supplements. Since my labs finally came back normal I've added back my calcium + D. I've always taken a multi, and I've recently added a B complex and fish oil. Could any of these supplements be causing this?

Any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

Not a clue, but a bump in hopes of finding someone who can offer insight.

Look into blood sugar problems. For a few days, don't eat any sugar at lunch (fruit, yogurt, milk all included) and eat a snack at 4ish. I had a similar problem with dizzyness right at about 3-4pm every day and that was the issue. Are you getting unusually sweaty? That's another symptom. Easy to check and worth a shot.
