No, not if she: Continues to get adequate fluids, nutrition and rest, and avoids alcohol and other drugs which are sometimes used inappropriately to relieve tension.

What can I take for tension headaches during pregnancy?

Depends: Generally, tylenol (acetaminophen) is considered safe. You should, however, consult with your obstetrician before taking any medication (prescription or over the counter) during pregnancy.

I get severe and frequent tension headaches. I'm 12 weeks pregnant. Should I be concerned?

Not unusual: Almost certain that your headaches do not represent tumors, blood clots, or stroke risks, and will likely depart over next few weeks as you enter the second trimester of pregnancy.

I'm having brwn blood /pain on the lower rght side/tension headaches. I had a baby/tubal/sm intestin tear on 9/26/12. Could I be pregnant in my tubes?

I'm having brwn blood /pain on the lower rght side/tension headaches. I had a baby/tubal/sm intestin tear on 9/26/12. Could I be pregnant in my tubes?

Complicated Answer: Chances are if you already had a tubal pregnancy, the scar tissue from that event (even if non surgical) might preclude a second pregnancy in the same fallopian tube. But that still mean you must be evaluated with not just a uring HCG test but a serum HCG and probably an ultrasound of your right side. Chronic appendicitis can also create these symptoms. Please go see your primary md or your ob/gyn. ...Read more
