Severe Headaches During 2nd Trimester

I've had to go to the ER becuase for about two weeks I had the same headache that just wouldt go away! I couldnt keep dinner down, and the next morning I threw up the breakfast I ate and all the water I drank because my headaches were so intense. [I hadnt got sick through my whole prengnacy so far] They gave me some morphine, and perscribed me a low dose of percoset [which im being very careful with].. Anyways, I know headaces are very common during pregnancy, but why are they so intense? Why for so long? And what can I do about them without taking all these pain killers?
