  • If you're throwing up a lot, I would guess you might be a little dehydrated. That can cause some nasty headaches.

  • Double check w/ your Dr., but I'm pretty sure all you can take is Tylenol. It could be sinuses too. I've been getting sinus headaches for about a week now. Feel better.

  • First thing to try is to drink a glass of water and wait a bit. Dehydration is a very common cause of headache. If that doesn't take care of it, then call your Dr.'s office and ask what they recommend.

  • Dehydration probably. Eating too much salt? Drink as much water as you can during the day. Cut out all salt including the sodium in drinks.

  • How far along are you?? Headaches can be caused by anything from dehydration to hypertension/pre-e... talk to your doc, make sure they are fully aware of this before doing anything else but drinking tons of water

  • If you can afford it, acupuncture is wonderful. Drink water with electrolytes. Eat plenty of protein-snack on raw almonds. Get plenty of rest and exercise.

  • This is going to sound stupid, but it might work for you. Take a clothespin, then find the place on the skin between the thumb and forefinger on your hand, you'll know when you pinch it because there's a little bulge under the skin that will roll and ache a little if you squeeze it. Clip the clothespin right on that spot, or pinch it between your other thumb and forefinger, and it will help with some headaches. It's acupressure.
