Post subject: Headaches
Hi i'm just over 7 wks pregnant, and for the past week have been unwell, tonsilitis and urine infection, i've just got over that and for the past 3 days have been having the worst headaches of my life! they are pounding and nothing i do eases them, paracetamol wont touch them, have spoken to my m/wife and she says headaches are normal and its my body reacting to the hormones, just wondered if anyone else has been experiencing this?
plus am also a bit stressed at the mo as v.worried something will be wrong with baby and have an assignment due in soon which i havent started!!

Oh poor you - I had a really bad head the other day and like you paracetamol just would not shift it, yes they are definitely more common in pregnancy due to hormonal changes etc but I would say that as you have been unwell that probably hasnt helped. I have suffered with cluster headaches in the past and was told they were due to dehydration - try and up your fluid intake I am absolutely certain it helps. Hope all goes well with your assignment, take care Flossie xx

yup, have also suffered but apparently its all about hydration so try and drink a little every half an hour or something similar it def helps
also sleep always helps or just try and be in a darker room or even wear sunglasses to take light away from the equation
