Are these nasty headaches normal?

I've just joined up here after having a :BFP: on Sunday.
Can anyone help me, I've had lots of pain all through treatment especially with OHSS, but over the past week I've had a nasty headache developing and today it's banging. I'm trying not to take paracetemol but I feel so unwell with it, I thought maybe it was my sinuses flaring up and it's also like pressure in my head. Is this normal at this stage? I'm 21 days post ec today and I feel really tearful too, also I thought maybe it could be the Clexane I have to inject.

Any one else had such headaches?

If they are that bad, then take the parcetamol. It is absolutely fine during pg. It may also be worth getting your blood pressure checked. I had high BP all the way thru my pg, and that caused headaches.

And huge congratulations on the BFP!

Hello mm, sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. I'm on the Clexane jabs for OHSS too. I haven't had any headaches until today funnily enough. Right now I have a banging one! I had so much paracetamol & codeine in hospital, I'm trying not to take much more, but may have to soon. As said above, maybe we both need to drink more. Do take it easy, and I hope you feel better soon x x x

I suffered terrible with headaches right up until I got into my 3rd Tri then they seemed to filter off.

Plenty of water or juice to rehydrate @ least 2ltrs a day and get your M/W to check your BP also.

Paracetomol do help and are deemed as safe if the headaches are that bad.
