    i keep getting these dull headaches every few days. anyone else get this?
    if so, is there a 100% sure-safe medication to to take? so far, the only thing close to medication i've taken is tums. i'm really trying to not take any meds at all, but these headaches are not fun. :nope:

    Since you're in California I'll add paracetamol is the same as tylenol. I've been getting loads of headaches as well, and been taking them regularly to keep me sane!

    I didn't think stepsils were allowed, but I'm not sure on that one.

    tylenol in the us is the same i agree. and it's regular strength that is safe not extra strength :) good luck! i'd tell your mw it could just be normal pregnancy but could also show some issues coming up.

    You can take 2 regular Tylenols or 1 extra strength one every 4-6 hours :) I'm a doctor and I confirmed with 6 different pharmacists!

    I am with you girl. I have been getting the dull headaches off and on for weeks now (usually on my forehead area)...they are not fun. I haven't taken anything, although I almost gave in and took some tylenol yesterday but my husband lightly rubbed my forehead and it went away.
