Terrible Headaches

Heidi - April 11

I'm at about 13 wks and I'm having terrible headaches that Tylonel is not helping at all. I took six yesterday over 6 hours and they did nothing for me except make me sick to my stomach. I miss my Advil. They seem to be in my temple area and around my eyes. It's getting so sickening. I know they say change in hormones can do this but I've never had so many headaches in my life and usually they go away if I take something but now I just give up! What is going on?

I've had those too, but since I never take meds, Tylenol works for it. Only other things I would suggest is asking your Doc for another safe med, using ice packs, heat packs, taking more naps, and trying sucking on a lollipop or hard candy - sometimes I get headaches because my blood sugar is low. GOOD LUCK!! :)

I am by no means recommending it, but my dr. said I could take advil for mine. I said no. So, she laughed and said "I don't blame you. Suffer and drink more water."

Heidi, try drinking more water during the day too. I find that if I don't have at least 3 large gla__ses of water during the day I get headaches in the same places you do during the evenings...

I have been drinking a lot of water. I feel like a bloated cow! I wonder why Advil is bad? That's all that ever seems to help but I can't take them. I've even been laying down in the evening after work and napped and I wake up with the headache. I'm seeing my doc today so hopefully she has some answers. I've never been one to be able to get rid of a headache with heat/cold packs either unfortunately.

Maybe you are drinking too much water? Are you going through caffeine withdrawl? A lot of items have caffeine and we don't even know it--beside the obvious soda/coffee/chocolate, energy bars/drinks...ask your dr. if you can have half a cup of coffee daily to help you to ween off of the drug...if that is the case. I had them too, but they have subsided just this week. I don't know what I did differently, or I'd be sharing that with you.
