I've had more headaches-and the one thing that is safe to take is tylonol-not sure if that will help with a migraine...hopefully some! And drinking lots of water has helped me.

Hi there, Im sorry to say if you normally suffer from these headaches then it is normal for them to continue during pregnancy, sometime they may be a little worse. Please let your midwife know if they persist for more than a few hours, come regularly, or are accompanied by blurred vision. Try having a nap with a cold face cloth on your forehead. Some lucky people find they stop having headaches all together as their pregnancy progresses. Hope thats you!!! You take good care of yourself.

I've noticed a higher frequency of migraines, but when I think back I realise I've not had any coffee. Only yesterday I had a killer migraine all day and all night. I was taking low dosage co-codamol prescribed by my gp and nothing would shift it. I had a cup of coffee and half an hour later the headache was gone.

How scary that caffeine is stronger than prescription drugs!!!

It's all very well avoiding coffee and tea but if that's what stops you from being in pain, then so be it, it's better than swallowing 8 pills a day til the headache goes away which is usually about 4 days!!!

i've always had migraines, they're normally brought on by changes in light(quick going from dull to really light etc)

i have bought some prescription reaction lenses, these seem to really help as i've not had a migraine ever since i started wearing them.


i think caffeine can also cause migraines so might be best to keep the caffeine intake low
