Suggest remedy for severe headache during pregnancy

I am almost 12 weeks pregnant and I have been having excruciating headaches for three straight days now non stop. I went to the ER two nights ago to try and get relieve and since I am pregnant they said there really isn t anything they can do for me. They gave me some IV s with benedryl in it. It didn t get rid of the pain, only knocked me out for the night. I called my doctor yesterday morning and they told me I could take some ibuprofen since I am still in my first trimester. That has not really done a whole lot for me either. They are so bad I am sick to my stomach and have thrown up. Another thing is my ears are burning and feel hollow or plugged in a way. I am miserable and have tried everything possible to get rid of these. Please help me!!!

Hi.

The headaches are most probably associated with a hormonal surge which is common during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester and unfortunately your doctors cannot do much mainly because any sort of intervention can affect your babys health. I understand how pregnancy can be difficult, but there are certain things that can only be left to god.

Best wishes.
