I'm absolutely sick of them! I we suffering horribly between weeks 10 and 18, finally managed to see a doctor that stopped putting it down to my hormones and investigated, and it turned out I have a severe sinus infection and needed ABs. The migraines cleared up and I have had a blissful 2 weeks of no headaches/pain/sickness.
I'm now 22 weeks and they are back with a vengeance! I have spent the last 2 days throwing up. My eyesight is suffering again and I just feel generally rotten!
Paracetamol are doing no good. I have coedine which make me sleepy so reluctant to take while I'm at work. I also have anti-sickness meds, but I have forgotten to bring them to work with me!!
I was told by the time I got to 20 weeks and my hormones settled down this would all be over but it's not and I'm fed up!
Any advice on what I can do to help myself? I am drinking plenty of water (At least 2 litres a day on my mw's advice) and have had my eyes tested.
I have had PLENTY and apart from drinking loads of water and taking paracetamol the only thing that helped take them away was my 4head stick its about £4, like a Chapstick, you rub it once or twice across your forehead and after a min or two it eases the pain. Also rest your eyes from TV/phones and laptops etc they make them even worse!!
I know it's pricey, but have a look at this. It's completely safe to use during pregnancy. I've got one, and it's been an absolute godsend for my migraines. I wish they'd been around when I was pregnant (many years ago!) www.cefaly.co.uk/
I know it looks weird, but a lot of people get on very well with it. Also you can have it on a 60 day trial and then if you don't get on with it you'll get nearly all your money back.
Perhaps worth looking into. Hope you feel better soon.
