So for the past 2 weeks I've had these terrible headaches that will not go away. I take my acetaminophen, it does nothing. I try showers, baths, sleep, compresses, everything, nothing makes it go away. It's there when I wake up and it's there when I go to sleep, and last night I couldn't get back to sleep because it hurt so bad. I've had this constant headache for 2 weeks! It hurts low on my eyebrows and sharpest in my temples, down through my ears and down the sides of my neck into my shoulders. I'm dizzy and sick from it sometimes. It's terrible.
When I went to my first prenatal appointment on Tuesday, they said "Oh that could be bad. That could be something serious." Then completely ignored the subject no matter how hard I tried to talk about it. I'm into my second trimester now, and even though the Doctors said "Oh that could be bad" She refused to talk about it. I've made an appointment for Wednesday of next week with the Doctor I wanted as my primary doctor, and hopefully he helps me, but in the meantime, can anyone on here.
Has anyone else had headaches like this and if so, how did you make them stop and what did it mean if anything?

I have never been pregnant, but I have done a lot of research since it's something I'm still indecisive about. Not sure if what you have is really serious or not, but here's a video on a massage technique for pregnant women.
It might help, but again, depends on how serious it is.

Thanks. I'll give it a try. I'm so tired of being sick, dizzy, sleepless and in constant pain.

Very important to check your blood pressure!!! That's the #1 thing they're worrying about. Do you have any way to measure it at home? there are other, rarer problems too, but that's definitely #1. Elevated BP is a very ominous sign in the first trimester.Blade, MD

They did my blood pressure at my appointment on Tuesday (the stupid nurse had to do it 3 times because she put the cuff on so tight my fingers went numb the first 2 and busted blood vessels in my arm) and said it's normal, so I'm not sure about this "This could be serious" stuff. I felt like "If you're not going to tell me, why even bring it up? Or why not do some sort of test if you can?"
