We are figuring out whether the expectant mother needs a doctor and whether it is possible to take pills when the headache is very bad. Olga Borisovna Dmitrieva, a neurologist at the Semeynaya network of clinics (@klinika_semeynay), spoke about the nuances of headache treatment for those who are expecting a baby. Why headache during pregnancy During pregnancy, headache can be very common, especially in the first trimester. The reason is a change in hormonal levels, it can lead to an increase in migraine attacks. Is it dangerous for the unborn child In most cases, the headache does not harm the baby, but causes discomfort to the expectant mother. What drugs for headaches can you drink during pregnancy? The safest drug to combat pain during pregnancy and later, during breastfeeding, is paracetamol. Research shows that if mom takes paracetamol, it does not affect the baby's health in any way. It is important to observe the regimen and dosage, take it no more often than every six hours, and not exceed the dose of 4000 mg per day. During pregnancy, analgesics that contain codeine should be avoided and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen and aspirin) should be avoided. For nursing mothers, the restrictions are not so strict, and the headache can be relieved with both paracetamol and ibuprofen. Both of these drugs, despite the fact that they pass into breast milk, are absolutely safe for the baby. How you can prevent headaches during pregnancy Much depends on your diet and lifestyle. Hormonal changes during pregnancy lead to increased fatigue, which is why pregnant women need adequate sleep. It's important to drink plenty of water and avoid foods that can give you a headache. Common triggers include cheese, chocolate, and foods containing monosodium glutamate. Sometimes the head hurts from hunger, in this case, a healthy snack will help reduce the pain. Relax: breathing techniques and yoga help well (only with an instructor, not all yoga movements are allowed for pregnant women). When a doctor is needed It is not always possible to get by with a sound sleep and a cup of tea with a sandwich. When do you need a specialist consultation: an unusually severe headache, especially if it occurs for the first time during pregnancy; increased blood pressure; headache is accompanied by blurred vision or flickering of flies, sparks in front of the eyes; the headache is accompanied by a sharp pain under the ribs, vomiting, or swelling.
