Headaches

Two days in a row now, the headaches are killing me. Of course, all I've been taking are Tylenol. When you get a bad headache, what do you do? It's making me crazy! I had bad headaches while preggo with DS1 but it's easy to sleep through them when you're kid free. Lol. I don't think I can do that now. Wink

:lurk:
I have had them really bad with my last couple pgs. I was told to try 2 extra strength tylenol with some Dr. Pepper, coke, etc. That didn't do much for my headaches. My DR ended up giving me a script for Feriocet this time around. While it doesn't take them away totally it does help a bit. I hope you are able to find some relief....I know how hard it is to deal with headaches and not be able to sleep.

Yes and I got them last pregnancy too. I use caffeine. A soda or a half caff cup of coffee always helps. If they get too serious then I will also do a Tylenol.

I never got headaches when I was pregnant with DS, though I have gotten migraines/headaches in the pre-pregnancy it was never this frequent or bad. This pregnancy my headaches were so bad a few weeks ago that they completely inhibited my every day life, those were definitely migraines. My OB ended up prescribing Butal and they helped a little but not enough for me to feel safe taking them often. I found the best thing that helped (besides tylenol) was laying down in a cool dark room with a cold washcloth on my head/over my eyes. I hope you find some relief soon!

I had them with DD but have not had them this time. What worked for me last time was just lying down in a dark room.

Easier said than done with two little kids.

I have had them too. Ugh. What a pain. I also take Tylenol and drink a Coke, which seems to help some. I hope you can find some relief soon!!!

Thanks ladies. I'm usually a coffee drinker, but the summer heat does NOT make it appealing. I think I need to stock up on some pop, and quick!
