2nd Trimester

8-day headache

I've consistently had pain and pressure in my head since last Monday.  It's not unbearable, but it does not feel good.

I started having cold-like symptoms with it and my midwife said it was just a summer cold that could last 8 to 10 days.  This was Tuesday.  She told me to call if I got a fever.

Thursday morning I had a fever of 102 and I felt horrible.  I called and they prescribed me with a 5 day z-pack (antibiotic).  I thought it was weird that they didn't have me come in.   

Today I am still having cold symptoms, sore throat, coughing, runny nose, along with pressure in my ears and a consistent headache.  I called them and they are telling me to wait it out and take extra-strength Tylenol.  The Tylenol is not helping.

I am not a wuss, but isn't an 8-day headache a bad thing?   I would love to hear some thoughts and opinions.

    Mindy, I've been having a bad headache for a week too.  I called the midwife this morning and she said maybe it was sinus/allergies.  I've never had sinus or allergies problems but I guess it can come about with pregnancy?  She suggested some sudafed to see if that helps.  I HATE to take ANYTHING while pregnant, but its unbareable, so i'm willing to give it a shot.

    I had to finally break down and go to the doctor yesterday.  I have been sick since last Monday with pretty much the same symptoms.  THey gave me a shot & a Z-pack.  Today my head has hurt me pretty bad but I can't take anything since  I'm taking the Z-pack.  I ran some errands earlier today and everytime I went into a store my noise would burn sooooo bad.  I will be so glad to be over this crap!!!  Hope you feel better soon.
