Question Bad Headaches

I haven't posted much but am wondering if anyone else gets severe headaches. I am 13 weeks today. I ended up going to the ER 2 days ago. I couldn't stop vomiting and had a headache that would not go away for 2 days. It is still kinda lurking in my brain at this point. They ended up giving me a shot of Demerol and Phenergan. It seemed to help a bit at the time but I can't seem to function at all when these headaches take over.
I am staying away from caffeine and drinking a lot of water. Tylenol doesn't touch this pain. What does anyone else do? Thanks .

Sorry I can't offer much help, but I've been getting headaches too. They make me sick to my stomach and Tylonel doesn't touch them. Yesturday I just went to bed. The dark seems to help! Hope you can find something to help you out. Good luck

I've also suffered from bad headaches during my pregnancy and Tylenol doesn't do anything for me. I've tried sleep, cold compresses, lavender oil, relaxation, massage...but the thing that works best for me is heat. I'll take a hot shower and let the water soak my head for as long as it takes to get relief. Also, a heating pad on the sore area helps as well since you can only spend so much time in the shower.
