I sympathise! I have a nerve condition which causes migraines and pain in my face. I only take paracetamol though have been told can take co codamol. Before I was pregnant I used melatonin which worked better than any other anti seizure mess.

Anyway. Headaches at end of first try start of second got so bad with me. I was offered an Indian head massage from someone I knew practising and I kid you not in 4 weeks since I had it I've had 2 bad migraines. I used to get them every other day. So maybe try an Indian head massage if you can?

Loving the idea of the massage!
Thankfully they aren't as bad as some of you ladies.

I did try the ice pack and am drinking lots of water already, but will amp that up.
Sounds like I am not alone with the headaches though which in a weird way makes me feel better. Thanks for all the suggestions.

I have those on and off since I've entered second trimester. I find that the headache is really bad when my blood pressure is low. I then drink some coffee (not strong, with milk) and it usually helps as it raises my BP. Also, if I drink less water in the day my head is killing me in the evening. Hope you find something that helps x

Hey, so I suffer from hemiplegic migraines and lupus/fibromyalgia headaches so I feel your pain. I've just been In hospital for 48hrs last week due to issues and a nasty migraine. The Dr's (HIGH RISK OBSTETRICIAN) was satisfied prescribing me 30/500 co-codamol whilst my migraine peaked . I stopped taking It after six doses, as I was feeling icky and migraine was slightly relieved. So rather than drugs of that strength I have a coffee and one pint of water every morning as soon as i get up. If needed I'll take paracetamol too. Then I'm conscious to drink at least another four (at least) pints of water through the day. Certain foods can trigger it but not always . I'll be glad when I can take my regular medication again.

I had those around the same stage of pregnancy, there are awful! I found it really helped to make sure I was drinking plenty to avoid getting dehydrated and taking paracetamol (tyconel in the us I think?) The painkillers didn't totally the pain away but it helped a bit, my head aches went away luckily, hope yours does the same
