Why does my head hurt during pregnancy?
Most women feel great joy, learning about the interesting situation. However, already at the earliest possible times, euphoria is most often replaced by manifestations of toxicosis. Changes in taste preferences are not so bad. Nauseous, pressure jumps, pulse quickens (up to 95-110 beats per minute), headaches – you will not especially be happy about future motherhood. What if my head often hurts during pregnancy? Can I take an analgesic if it hurts too much? By what means to remove a headache? Is it possible to avoid such an unpleasant side effect of pregnancy?
Poor state of health is a phenomenon that often occurs in expectant mothers. Nausea in the morning, sometimes – vomiting, terribly headache – all these symptoms are typical for early toxicosis, which falls on the first trimester of pregnancy. Hormonal changes in the body are often accompanied by similar symptoms. However, if the head is very sore – this is not necessarily a toxicosis. The reasons for such an unpleasant phenomenon during gestation are as follows:
- Increased or low blood pressure;
- Stress states;
- Lack of sugar in the blood;
- Genetic factors;
- Defective rest;
- Cardiovascular diseases;
- Osteochondrosis (especially if they suffer from a neck);
- Bad habits.
Headache can signal a lack of oxygen. Therefore, daily walks in the fresh air are not only pleasant, but also useful. Even necessary.
Various compresses on the head also help with pain. One of the most effective - a compress of cabbage leaf. A fresh leaf of cabbage cabbage should be wrapped in a scarf to the place where it hurts most, and leave for a few hours. If the pain occurred before going to bed, such a compress can be done at night.
Important! Despite the fact that people's methods are considered harmless, you should not risk your health and, especially, the health of the baby's future. Before using any folk remedies to relieve headaches at home, you should consult your doctor to find out the root cause of the ailment.
