In brief: Get checked !
Headaches is a common symptom of many conditions mild and severe.
Tension headaches, low blood sugar and poor sleeping patterns can all cause these. Hellp is an atypical version of severe preeclampsia and best diagnosed by testing your blood for low platelets , and liver enzymes.
