Hi there,

Thanks for writing in .

I would suggest that you visit your doctor at the earliest. Headache in pregnancy might be a symptom of hypertension and it could have serious consequences for both you and the baby.

Also it would be better to get your blood sugar levels and thyroid function tests done as abnormal sugar and thyroid levels can also present with similar symptoms.

Please try to relax. Relaxation techniques and breathing exercises after consulting your doctor might be helpful. Stress and anxiety can also present with the symptoms you are currently experiencing.

Hope this helps.
