I am 15 weeks and i'm having severe headaches. Tylenol sometimes doesn't help. I feel dizzy and at times shaky. I have the runs like crazy today. Not sure what I should do.. anyone got any advice? I don't want to keep taking tylenol.. I called my doctor and they told me to take my prenatal at night, which i already do. Eat iron rich foods, and drink plenty of water. I prolly drink double my weight size in water a day.

  • girl i'm 13 weeks and I have horrible headaches. Well I have a history of migranes before I got pregnant but I have them pretty often lately. Tylenol doesn't work for me either....there are certain headache medicines your doctor can prescribe for you that are safe to take. Good luck with them hope you find a remedy =D!
