  • if they don't go away with tylenol, then can mean high blood pressure and gestational diabetes, preclampsyia among other you should def tell your doctor about them and let them determine if they are normal or not.

  • If they keep happening and don't go away with tylenol, then yes you need to tell your Dr asap about it. I had to have a prescription med for the headaches I had.
    I did not have High blood pressure, preeclampsia or GD
    I was just fine just really bad headaches.

  • If it is indeed a migraine and it just wont go away I usually end up at the e.r. from past experience it's the only thing that works for me. I have always had migraines, luckily mine taper off while pregnant, any who they can give you a shot of nubayne in the hiney they and my ob have assured me it's not harmful to the baby. Otherwise if a towel helps try a cool ice pack the flexy ones in the fridge work the best, when frozen they hurt too much, or the eye mask works too!!

  • I saw a chiropractor for that. It really helped.

  • yes, it can be a sign of high blood pressure which is bad when pregnant. Call your doc/ob. I also suggest a chiropractor if it's not your bp.
