Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

They might be related and that is very concerning to have a new onset headache on blood thinners

This could be related to a bleed in the brain or stroke.

I recommend you go to A and E and have a CAT scan right away.

And absolutely do NOT take any NSAIDs. This can only increase bleeding risk
