Could be: You can also experience dizziness, vertigo.

Not always: You could be suffering from migraines as all these symptoms can be present during a migraine disorder. If these symptoms occur when you are traveling, then they are most likely motion sickness :).

Is it safe to use motion sickness medication while pregnant?

Yes: A lot of motion sickness medications are safe in pregnancy. Meclizine and dramamine (dimenhydrinate) are both class b which are safe in pregnancy. Wrist bands that are used for motion sickness are also totally safe in pregnancy. This is a really hard topic as most women are a little nauseated in pregnancy and travel doesn't make that better. Good luck!
A 28-year-old member asked:

Will taking doxylamine at night last long enough to help with my midday nausea?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in

Try it and see!: One half tablet of doxylamine can be taken along with vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) three times daily for nausea of pregnancy. As a side effect can be sleepiness, an alternative is to take a full tablet at bedtime, and just use the B6 during the day. Try both ways and see what works for you.

I have headache in my head what I have to do?

Dr. Keegan Duchicela

Cause of headache: The best way to tackle a headache is to figure out what's causing it in the first place - is it a migraine, from not eating breakfast this am, from skipping a dose of a medicine, from not getting enough sleep? There can be many reasons. For the run of the mill dull headache, i usually like to try some Ibuprofen and/or tylenol (acetaminophen) first and see how it feels after an hour or so.

Why does the LH surge stimulating ovulation cause fatigue, headache and acheyness ? What can one do to eleviate those symtoms?

Dr. Annette Fineberg

Hormones: When you have your lh surge, your estrogen level is high and your ovary has a small cyst that is about to burst (ovulate.) moderate exercise such as a brisk walk or swim is probably helpful. Tylenol (acetaminophen) would also be a reasonable and safe.
