any ideas on what to do about headaches?

I feel constantly thirsty -- but honestly I'm sure I am getting enough water (yesterday I drank over 100 ounces of water). These headaches feel like migranes do for me in the just-before my period days of my cycle. If I get a migrane I need to go sleep in a dark room for it to go away. Not really an option today so I'm looking for other ideas.

Have you tried to drink to thirst? I know that you seem to be getting enough water, but I'd try drinking until I am no longer thirsty. Usually when I get a headache, drinking water stops it. A hot compress on the back of my neck is also helpful, usually. How is your BP? Not to worry you, but my husband gets headaches when his BP is high.

If you are having migraines, though, I don't think it would help in the slightest. I really hope it's not a migraine!

Hope it goes away!

thanks. i have tried drinking to thirst, but I find in general my body is really delayed -- like if i drink to thirst my tummy is full of water and I still feel thirsty for an hour or so while it absorbs (and I feel like puking from the water in the stomach).

I'm off for more water, some fruit and soem food.

I did take an ibuprofin and now realize I'm in the third trimester and am not supposed to. grrr. headache go away I can't concentrate!
