Sinus vein thrombosis after taking birth control pills

Posted by @segalit, Sat, Nov 17 7:57am

First of all, english is my second language so I'm sorry in advance for any kind of mistakes.
4 years ago , when I was 25 years old, after having very strong headaches, an MRI showed I have 3 blood clots in my brain. It happened because I took birth control pills and apparently I have a genetic disorder that causes blood clots.
Ever since then I've been taking blood thinners so I'm no longer at risk but I still suffer from daily headaches.
Ever since then my life changed completely. I had to stop working and take a break from college. I'm trying to get used to it and learn how to live with the pain, and hopefully completing my college degree.
I was wondering if anybody else who suffered from a similar problem could tell me if there's any triggers to those headaches, or things I should avoid doing or eating? And also what helped you cope with it and accept this new reality?
