I've had really bad headaches for over a week now. It's right behind my eyes and won't go away with Panadol and drinking heaps of water. It's constant and I go to sleep with them and wake up with them.
What can I take to get rid of it? I'm 17 weeks?

Please see your doctor if you haven't already. Severe headaches can be a sign of high blood pressure/preeclampsia. They can also tell you what's safe. I took panadeine and endone during pregnancy which was not ideal but ok.

I'll try to make it to the doctor today. I really could have done with some time off work but we have too many people away.

I had pretty bad headaches which my ob attributed to hormones. It is fairly common to have hormonal headaches. If you are still sick could you be dehydrated?
However best eliminate anything more serious with a quick visit to the dr.
I hope you feel better soon.

It could just be hormonal. Its horrible.
Could it be eyesight as well? It changes during pregnancy sometimes.

Could it be neck tension, or because of back pain? Maybe a massage would help? Couldn't hurt, anyway ☺

I do t have back/neck pain but I do have pelvis pain. GP said its hormonal and refused to let me have anything but Panadol.
I went to two different chemists and both refused to give me anything stronger. I literally cried both times.

You should be able to have panadeine.
I cant believe neither the dr or pharmacist recommended it.
