In brief: More Info Please

If you are early in pregnancy, you can try some tylenol (acetaminophen) for your headaches.
You can also sleep it off. You may try some tiger Balm massage on your head and forehead. However, a headache later in pregnancy can be a sign of Pre Eclampsia. You should see your doctor and get your BP check done. Good Luck.
