Severe headaches at 12 weeks, please help
Hi Ladies

I will be 12 weeks on Wednesday and over the past week I have been experiencing severe headaches. I have been taking panados now and then when it gets too bad, but I don't want to overdue it. I will be seeing my gynae on Friday so hopefully she will be able to tell me what is going on, but any idea what I can do about these headaches in the meantime, they are really making me feel terrible.

Have a wonderful day and thank you

Changes in blood flow can cause headaches in early pregnancy. Try drinking lots of fluids and resting when you can. Panado is fine.
