Welcome to XXXXXXX

Answers to your questions are as following:-

(i) Calcimax does not cause headache.

(ii) Frequent headache during first trimester is common. It can be due to tension, lack of sleep, general fatigue, eye strain, stress etc.

(iii) Though it may not point to some severe problem, you should get her B.P. checked after 3.00pm. If it is normal, there seems nothing to be worried. If it is abnormal or if headache increase, please consult Gynecologist for examination.

If you have further query in this regard, please feel free to ask.
