    Is it just me that has these? I seem to have no breaks in betwee headaches. Ive taken paracetamol,but they dont seem to work. They stay for up to 3 days sometimes even longer. Oh gosh and it makes me feel awful. They get so bad they make me feel nauseas.Has any1 else have something other than paracetamol that i could try?? :hugs:

    I had one everyday for 2 weeks, sometimes paracetamol worked and other times it didn't. Sometimes a weak cup of coffee worked. Other than that - you'll just have to ride it out I'm afraid. Hope they go soon, I've been headache free for a few weeks now x

    yep me too.. i've found '4head' to be really good! they are natural and safe to use in pregnancy and they are like a menthol stick you rub on your temples.. they sell them in boots... they are my lifesaver!!! x

    There's nothing else you can take for them. I have migraines 90% of the time, and the doctors can't do anything. I was on meds for them before I was pregnant, but now they're coming thick and fast. My longest one was three weeks. How depressing :(

    Hope you feel better soon
