I have a really bad head ach that will not quit and pain in my back between my sholder blades and in my neck. I didn't want to take anything but I can't do it anymore; what is safe or safest to take??
Tylenol is safest but useless. My OB with DS ok'ed me to take ibuprofen until the end of 2nd tri because my headaches were so awful, but it's supposed to raise the risk of bleeding or something
You might also try some caffeine. A small cup of coffee or a can of soda is safe. Maybe try a cool cloth on your face or a soak in a warm tub for your back. A back rub from DH couldn't hurt either lol
Hope you feel better soon :)
my ob also ok'd ibuprofen for my sciatica back pain but I declined.
heating pad on your back and some extra strength tylenol
