  • You could use a cold or warm compress, try lying down and resting, and I've never used them but I've heard wearing an amber necklace does wonders for pain.

  • drinking a 2 glasses of water always does the trick for me. A good chunk of the time, we get headaches because of lack of water in our body...

  • Tylenol, and a bag of frozen peas on the most painful area. I still do it! Ah yes, and a cup of coffee. The caffiene works, and it's not enough to hurt anything.

  • you usually can take tylenol while pregnant. But I don't like taking any of that because even though you can take it you still don't know how much baby is getting so I usually just deal with it. We just had this discussion the other day the neighbor was down here and my back was hurting so bad I could barely walk. He asked me why I don't take some ibprofin I told him you can't when pregnant. He said he never heard that before. I told him well I can take tylenol, but I don't like to while pregnant. He said so what you are going to sit in pain? I told him I don't know how much actually go to the baby so I wont take it so then he said well that is your falt your in pain if you wont take anything lol. But I don't like to while pregnant and I to don't know what else to do about it.

  • I will soak in a nice, warm tub and then if that does not work then I will try resting in a cool, dark room. I also will drink a cup of coffee and sometimes that does it. My friend gets migraines and she swears that drinking Gatorade helps--- I have not tried it so I don't know how well it works. Good luck, I hope you feel better soon.
