I take benadryl and then take a hot shower kinda I don't let the water hit me when its really hot but I get it realy steamy in the bathroom then turn the water to warm and stand under it. It usually clears my head and helps with the headache. But the dr says my headaches are because of my sinuses. Ask your Dr because my dr was going to give me a prescription if I wanted but i decided against it.
I did, but mine were caused by high blood pressure. I just would take tylenol and lay down when I could.
yes with my first they were just plain headaches and I took tylenol for them
With my second I got optical migraines twice and those were miserable!
With this one I was getting 2-3 migraines a week and was losing my vision so the dr put me on cyproheptad which is actually an allergy medication similar to benadryl. I take 1 at night before bed and not only does it knock me out but Ive been on it for 2 weeks and havent had a migraine since!
I feel for you. I actually stopped getting my migraines during my last pregnancy.
During the rest of them, I would lay down in a very dark room, with no noise, and take 2 tylenol, and go to sleep.
caffeine does help. That's why excedrin has caffeine as an ingredient.
Quoting Astrachanca:I had headaches nearly every night in the first trimester. I sipped on iced tea around lunch and had a few glasses. The caffeine helped, I think.
I had always had migrains anyway but they were worse when I was pregnant. I was put on fiorcet and it works like a charm
