Bad headache

(6 Posts)

I'm 20+4 and have high risk pregnancy. Currently on blood thinners and I have PIH so am on medication.

I've had a really bad headache all day and can't shift it with paracetamol.

Can I wait until tomorrow to get my blood pressure checked out or do I need to call triage?

It's not debilitating but it's bad enough I'd be taking Solpadeine if I wasn't pregnant - it's like a migraine pre-cursor intensity.

Call and ask.

Told me to call Dr first thing so I'll try to sleep and do that.

sad hope you're able to get some rest and feel better flowers

Thank you - I'll try to head to bed in a bit.

The tablets make me feel a bit rotten too which probably doesn't help 😔

I had monstrous headaches last week. They made me feel really unwell. Midwife suggested my blood sugar level had dropped so I should drink more but also up my calories. It definitely helped. Might be worth having a jam sandwich before bed??
