I don't normally post on this board but I've suffered with both migraines & tension headaches since I was in my early teens. Currently I am 16 1/2 weeks pregnant so when the headaches started almost immideiately I was in no way surprized but everyone said they "should" calm down once I hit my 2nd trimester but they've only gotten worse! It's like a combination between a migraine, a tension headache & a headache from my TMJ all rolled into one. I have tried everything I have ever heard of to try and relieve these headaches but they seem to come and go as they please and nothing I do seems to make a difference. I put a call into my OB to see if there is anything he can give me b/c I just can't take it anymore and I have a friend who is a massage therapist coming by today to do some work on my neck. I was just wondering if anyone has had this type of headache and what helped them get through it...also did it seem to happen everyday? I'm starting to get a little concerned here.
Thanks for your help!

Try not to worry too much, unfortunately although most women when pregnant see their headaches disappear (mine did), there are some that get them worse than usual.

Talk to your obstetrician and your Neuro to see if there is anything they can do to help!

take care
