    definitely no aspirin hun as it thins your blood.

    Panadeine is OK only in very small doses and only if really necessary. Same with panadeine forte under STRICT doctor's orders.

    I found the best way to fix a headache....and it really really works:

    Get a fluffy hand towel and thoroughly wet it and then wring it out. Place it in the microwave until it is steaming and burning hot.

    Wait until you can just bear to touch it and wrap it around your neck and pull tightly. Mainly around the back of your neck.

    This will increase the blood flow up to your head and should give instant relief

    let me know how you go xxx

    A definite no no to aspirin, panadol is OK and panadeine and panadeine forte only under Dr's advice. I had some horrid ongoing dental work done when I was 16 weeks prg and my OB gave me a script for panadeine forte. I used panadol mainly but panadiene forte for 2 nights to get some rest.

    I suffer from bad headaches lasting days over the counter drugs do not help

    Try a website Googling " Pain free Egoscue" The exercises do really help even doing a few has made a big difference for me.

    Anyone have a suggestion for something stronger than Panadol that doesn't have Codeine in it?? I'm allergic to Codeine Danni's trick has helped, but not enough.

    Not sure if its accessable to you(or if you're into this kinda thing)...

    But mixing essential oils of 3 drops of lavender and 2 drops of camomile in a base oil(like sweet almond) of about 10mil and massage it around your temples, neck and shoulders.

    Wouldn't it have the same ingredients as the regular nurofen that's not allowed in pregnancy though?

    from the back of the "nurofen migraine" box:

    Do not take:
    * During pregnancy except with your doctors advice
    * during the last 3 months of pregnancy

    So maybe check with your doc and you should be able to take it apart frmo the last tri?

    OMG Mabello I love you!! I said to Aaron last night if you were closer I'd drive over & kiss you LOL! Last night I had such a bad headache that it was making me feel nauseaus & I thought my head was going to explode. I remembered this trick & tried it again (last time I don't think it was hot enough). But OMG the relief was fantastic. My headache didn't completely go, but I was able to move my eyes without pain & could actually function again!!

    Thank you thank you.
