Hi @Dr_Paula thanks for your reply and your advice. It made me take this a bit more seriously and go to get seen.
I called NHS 111 for advice initially as I am registered at a GP service where I used to live (about an hour and a half away). I did look up clinics too but they were advertised as under 25s only!
I didn’t get a call back from 111 till gone midnight so I missed the chance to get their advice.
So next morning I called the local GP surgery where I live now and asked for an ‘emergency’ appointment.
The Dr said I did the right thing and said it does sound like a migraine with aura and I am now ‘contraindicated’. (She shined a torch device in my eyes to check there wasn’t another cause for my headaches).
I can’t take any combined contraception now due to increased risk of stroke.
After a brief chat about options, I’ve been prescribed the mini pill cerelle.
So all in all fairly easy to switch over to a progestogen only option!
She said my headaches could also get better - which I’ll keep and eye on.
I’m glad I didn’t ignore it and just carry on!
