15 weeks pregnant and having constant headaches all the sudden, whats the deal?

I called my doctor a little over a week ago because of how bad my headaches were and he asked where they were starting and I said my neck and then worked its way up. He said that it was caused from stress and we left it at that. They went away for a little while and then came back but this time there not starting from the neck there just aching all over my head and when I take tylenol for them it stops hurting for about 30min to an hr and then starts all over again. Being pregnant I dont like taking tyleno every day which is what I have been doing for the past three days because of how bad the headaches are. Should I be worried and what could this be from?

  • Are you drinking a lot of water? The first thing I do when I get a headache while pregnant is drink a glass of water. The majority of the time that takes care of it. I would try that first and if it doesn't help at all, call your doctor again. I'm like you. I didn't even like taking tylenol when pregnant.

  • My friend had migranes all the time when pregnant with her first and nothing with her second. She was told the baby was laying on her siatic nerve I guess and she had to lay in a dark room with a rag on her forehead, not sure if it was cold or hot rag but ya. I thought u could take percocet while pregnant?? I heard it was ok I thought like at a certain week
