What relieves headaches in pregnancy?
Acetaminophen, taken as directed, is usually safe and effective, but always consult your healthcare provider before taking any medication. For sinus pressure, place a warm compress over your eyes and nose; for tension headaches, apply a cold compress to the base of your neck. Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. To fight dizziness, keep it slow when you're getting up from bed or a chair, and maintain your blood sugar level with healthy snacks like fresh or dried fruit, yogurt, or whole-grain crackers.
