BAD PAIN IN MY HEAD - PLEASE HELP

Hello all. Ok I am 4 Months Preggo and for the last 3 days I would say I have been having the pain on the left side of my head about 2 inches away from my ear...its pain full and I am not sure what it is....Some say its the way I am sleeping, others say its from my sinus problem. But I am not sure if either of those things would cause a pain at the location it is in....Any ideas on what I should do or has this happen to anyone before? I will say I do have some pain in my neck aswell and I do get a sinus headache through out the day but thats in the front of my head.....Thank you all for your help ahead of timee....and HAPPPY MOTHERS DAY

  • i had that around the same time when i was 4-5 months pregnant it hurt so bad i could cry! the dr said that it can happen when the baby shifts and sits just right on a nerve not alot one can do but wait till he/she shifts again and take some Tylenol sometimes if its bad enough will prescribe Tylenol with codine

  • I hope that is all it is I will take the pain for that....I am a person who worries alto and brain cancer runs in my family....I know I cant take a MRI or anything.....I dont know I think I am over reacting, but I am sure its nothing.

  • I had severe headaches with all my pregnancies. The doctor said they were vascular headaches, and he gave me something for them. I would call and ask for something. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of it.

  • Anytime I get a migraine (I don't have any Rx meds, bc my insurance ran out) I take 2 200mg ibuprofen. And if it doesn't go away within an hour or so, I take another 2. But I have really bad constant migraines that last over a week sometimes.

  • call your doctor, it could be blood pressure related. Even if its just a bad headache, there arfe safe meds and the pain you are in causes stress to the baby and besides who needs that type of pain? call.
