Cretinism: Until about 14 weeks gestation the fetus depends on the mother's thyroid hormone before it can make its own. Severe low levels of maternal thyroid hormone can cause cretinism which is a syndrome of severe physical stunting and mental developmental delay. If already diagnosed with hypothyroidism be diligent about taking daily thyroid hormone medication and get levels checked every 3 months at least.

Yes!: Excedrin migraine and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine like ibuprofen, naproxen, Ketoprofen all work well for many people. Sometimes a little caffeine or chocolate does just the trick [unless those are migraine triggers for you!]. Talk with your doc about prevention if your headaches are frequent, severe, your meds don't work, or it's changing your life. Good luck.
