Suffering from horrible Headaches!!!!!!

I'm having the worst time coping with the headaches that come along with pregnancy. I'm 24 weeks and I take extra strength Tylenol and drink 80oz of water a day. Nothing I try to relieve my headaches work. My head pounds on both sides all day and I can't take it. Please help.

I'm having the same problem, it makes me feel like total crud. And I've been taking Tylenol as well but what's helped me is when I fall asleep I put a warm cloth on my head

This is what worked for me maybe you can try it doc advised it take some tyenol with a caffeinated soda and drink it as fast as you can and it will knock the headache out so I normally lay day afterwards to get some rest

Are you anemic? I would get headaches like that everyday until I got on the right iron dosage.

No I'm not anemic... I think it's just the pregnancy symptoms.

My father always told me Caffeine helps headaches & Salt makes them worse.

I believe caffeine does help... I just don't drink soda while I'm pregnant. I will try it tho.

When my migraines were so bad that even  sleep didnt help I'd take an excedrin. But it does have a buttload of caffeine, but in a daily basis I'd either nap or have someone massage my neck and it felt oh so good!!!

Is Excedrin safe to take during pregnancy?

I'm not sure my OB just said to not take it because of the high caffeine
