Headaches During Pregnancy?

Posted by on May. 21, 2011 at 12:05 AM

I've had migraines since i was 15. I usually just head to the ER when I can't take it anymore. 

But with this pregnancy, I've had them CONSTANTLY almost every single day. My blood pressure is totally normal, and no complications with the baby so far. We're almost 19 weeks. 

My OB is currently on vacation (bastard), and his nurse just told me to keep going back to the ER til he can see me. I feel like everytime I walk in there, they think I'm a drug addict. The only thing they can give me to help is Demerol, Morphine, or Toradol. I have prescription fioricet and tylenol 3 but they're not working. 

They tried IV Benedryl but apparently I'm allergic to it. (What are the chances, right?)

Has anyone else gone through this? Is there anything else I can try?

drink LOTS AND lots of water. Tyelnol is safe, even take tyelnol pm for night time. If that doesn't cut it, you can take motrin. Rest, drink water !! I hope you feel better soon., Sleep well.

thank you ladies. I've tried all the OTC meds that are safe, and I'm downing 100+ oz of water per day. I'm just tired of the pain! :(

It may not be this, but a lot of headaches during pregnancy are due to NOT ENOUGH WATER.  you've had them since you were 15, so you could have something else, but maybe drinking a lot of water will help you a bit.  I drink a lot of water, and NEVER got headaches during my pregnancy like most pregnant women complain about.  Good luck!

Ob told me at least 80oz per day and im doing at least 100.  That should be enough, right? Cuz I'm SO tired of peeing.... lol
