Throughout the pregnancy, I had headaches. I can not say that they were permanent, but still not even the frequent sensations of this kind can be called pleasant.
At one of the receptions, the paid gynecologist asked if I had any headaches. I told her that sometimes there are. She advised me to measure my blood pressure more often and is attentive to what I eat and how much.
Since hunger can lead to headaches, it is advisable not to make large gaps between meals. It is better to eat smaller portions, but more often. She also advised in any case not to drink soda (actually I am not a fan, so for me it was not difficult).
The following recommendations were:
– spend as little time as possible on the monitor and TV
– minimize reading e-books
– organize yourself a healthy sleep in a well-ventilated room
By the way, the gynecologist in the antenatal clinic advised me to drink a no-silo for a headache. But I did not follow this advice.
I refused to read books in electronic form, necessarily aired daily the rooms and divided the portions into several receptions.
Sparkling mineral water was practically excluded, replacing it with ordinary natural water and personally boiled compotes (thanks to grandmother for the reserves of dried and frozen fruits and berries).
I also refused any harmful sweets, preferring nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts). In general, the maximum excluded from his diet all kinds of chemistry.
If, nevertheless, pain arose (and, as a rule, she visited me suddenly and without warning), then I had to take emergency measures to get rid of this trouble.
I was very well helped by sweet black tea without milk. Per 100 ml, I put about 3-4 teaspoons of sugar. It turned out intolerably cloying, since the usual dosage is 3 times less, but it helped. The main thing – tea must be hot. It will not be superfluous and a slice of dark chocolate.
You can also add lemon to tea.
One of my friends in the event of a headache applied a cabbage leaf to the back of the head. But I have not tried this method.
And you did not disturb the headaches during pregnancy?
